Comments
There were several skier triggered wind slab avalanches in days fork today in places where graupel had pooled underneath cliff bands. These were pretty manageable avalanches although I think there could be bigger, more exposed terrain that harbors this set up where this problem would be less manageable and might persist tomorrow.
