Problem #1 Comments

As noted above, well behaved today. Did ski cut out one small slab, approx 10’ wide and 16” deep. Was on a steep northerly facing slope that has avalanched previously this year so the underlying snow was thin and faceted. See photos. These types of slopes will be quite suspect next week.
