Comments: 

I was able to intentionally trigger two very soft but very touchy storm slabs today on Cutler.  I am not exactly sure the recipe but both were identical even though they were 1,500 ft vertically different.  Other slopes with similar aspect seemed very stuck.

Comments: 

Second slide right above the summer trail just before you turn west into the aspens.
