New snow at millers flat was 25 cm. Wind was blowing hard from the west.  Large cornice build up from East to North East. New snow was already stripped from pack. Still a lot of snow transport.

 

Comments

Looks like the slide was early this morning. There was also two smaller cornice failures along wedding ring ridge.
