Comments

Looked like slides were a couple days old... perhaps triggered Wednesday or early Thursday.. None-the-less, avalanche conditions remain sketchy on the Skyline and the big weekend warm up will most likely keep things on edge, especially in steep, rocky terrain facing the north half of the compass.
