Comments: 
4" to 6" of new snow this afternoon, wet to dense, skied fine up high but on the way out intentionally set off several wet slides of this size that ran 100 ft vertical or so with debris piles 1' to 2' deep. The new snow did not bond at all to the old stuff. The slide in the photo ran onto the quarry road a bit just around the corner from 1st waterfall. Snowed most of the afternoon but not much new accumulation. Cleared in the early evening.
