Superb powder riding, and the gift was riding SE, S and SW aspects before 1000 hours when the sun began to dampen the snow surface. All riding was extremely consistent and excellent. Wind damage limited to the most exposed areas in the alpine.
Major Evans and the Olympus event. Rocky, thin, steep areas NW, N, NE and SE above 9300 remain suspect, and the winds and SWE from the last event appear to be major players.
Widespread activity below 8000 feet observed in the new snow. Activity above 8500 feet appeared to be limited today, yet on Wednesday the temperatures are forecast to rise significantly and the possibility will likely increase.
Cornices are big in many locations, and the previously cited temperatures may make them sensitive over the next 72 hours.
The storm slab sensitivities appeared to have settled out significantly on Tuesday, and 30% settlement was observed from the latest event.
Moderate for all the problems cited above today, yet possible natural wet loose could be considered considerable during daytime heating.
Of note, high consequence moderate for the lingering Persistent and Deep Persistent Slab Problem.
