Comments

This isn't the best photo, but there appears to have been some shallow natural activity along the upper ridgeline of Ben Lomond. Looks like storm snow, fairly shallow, that was filled in by the storm and wind.

Comments

I saw this crown today too (photo below, right side below ridge) and thought it was a fresh storm slab, but after comparing it to photos from last week, it appears it is just an old slide (from 1/9) that was coated with the new snow.
