Location Name or Route
Diving Board, Broads Fork
Went up Broads Fork to the Diving Board today thinking there might be a bit less snow down lower in the canyon I was way off. Once we got past Bonkers the trail breaking was about thigh deep and stayed that way until we got in some avalanche debris at the top. Ended up doing a couple runs in the Blue Ice trees waiting for some visibility, when we did get visibility it was obvious that both the Diving Board and Bonkers had avalanched during the storm and filled back in and the slope under the Blue Ice was riddled with refrigerator size blocks of ice from a glide avalanche which I assume occurred during the rain event last week. The only activity noted today was sluffing in steeper terrain and some natural sluffs in the top of the Diving Board. I would think if the sun comes out tomorrow the wet activity will spike and steep S facing chutes and maybe even lower elevation N facing chutes in LCC might shed all the new snow, which is a lot.

Considerable for wet activity
