Comments
Multiple small point release slides on the south facing gullies in Santaquin canyon once the afternoon sun heated the newer snow up. Not significant enough in size to bury a person fully but definitely had enough force to push someone around. No profile for those aspects though. The north aspects had a stout crust under about 6" of snow at 5000'-6000'.
