Yesterday, overnight lows were colder and the snow was supportable until around noon on E to SE aspects in the False White and Mammoth Lakes basin above 10,000 to 10,500 ft. Steep north facing slopes above Hammill Lake that are shaded part of the day, held moist winter snow. There was a recent wet loose avalanche that started in the rocks below. East facing slopes above Conness Lakes were slushy by 1PM. The same party reported breaking through in the meadows along Lee Vining Creek in late afternoon.
