Comments: 
Sunday early afternoon we observed a few recent wet sluff avalanches. Monday morning we observed double the amount of recent avalanches. Many were point release. The biggest looks like it may have been a ski cut, but that could have been the crown of a slab. A lot of roller balls today. The surrounding area near UFO bowl looked similar. The E SE and S aspects snow was too sketchy to skin or ski on. Found safer snow in shaded areas and trees.
