Report from observer today in the Sherwins:

"Lots of rolling snow on ridge tops in the sherwins at about 4:00pm. Sensitive windslabs up to 2 feet deep, easily skier triggered. Nothing was stepping down below storm snow, but hand shears were going easy q1-2 fractures on new old interface. Rock chute, the perch, the main slide path, hose bowl all had natural wind slabs activity. Wet loose slides on south aspects of the bluffs under the cliffs, 5mm melt freeze crust on that slope at 4:30pm."
