Comments: 

Widespread avalanche activity on North and Northeast facing aspects.  Upper snowpack is drying out.  Some point releases on west aspects observed above treeline.  Skiing was actually pretty good from 11,300' to about 10,500' where submarine snow and ground hazards still rule.  Enough snow to slide out on though.
