*Disclaimer: These are avalanche result summaries from explosive control work and ski cutting done by professionals. This control work covers mostly in-bounds areas, with the majority of areas receiving a high amount of skier traffic. Take this into consideration when assessing how representative these results may be to avalanche conditions in nearby back country areas.
1/31/16 (early morning) - (upper mtn socked in) Lower hill hand charging and ski cutting produced avalanches in some areas with 4-6" crowns that propagated very widely. Very sensitive conditions, very soft slab. Take into consideration that not much snow fell overnight before these control efforts took place, and that much more snow fell throughout the day, and was mostly kept in check in-bounds during the day by heavy skier traffic.
