Avalanche Problem #1
Type: 
Normal Caution
Trend: 
Same
Problem #1 Comments: 

It could be possible to trigger something on upper elevation north aspects.  I am guessing low danger.

Comments: 

No snow profile today, too depressing.  HS up to 12-14" in sheltered north aspects.

Photos below:

1. High country near White Pine Peak.

2. current conditions at 7,400'.  This is what is left of a 24" storm.

3.  The big kids told me to build up some speed and lean back while going for the gap.....

4.  Sledders are getting brave, I hope they have their rock sleds.

If anyone wants to get in touch with me about snow/avalanche questions in SW Utah, I can be reached at swutbcski@gmail.com. I would be happy to walk anyone through the observation process.  All observations are appreciated.

mostly no danger but I am saying low to cover the high norths.

A short video of some of the ski conditions is below.
