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.

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