Comments: 

The light snow for yesterday afternoon was blow all around early this morning.  There are huge plums of snow that didn't exist just a few days ago and some cornices are finally forming. Widespread wind loading in exposed wind prone terrain but great snow in sheltered areas.  While skinning up an east facing aspect, I remotely triggered a manageable soft slab seen here.
