Isolated cracking in soft (4F) wind slabs that developed in the past 48 hrs (1/10-1/11). These averaged 4-24 inches thick on leeward slopes near treeline. We did not get above treeline.
Rollerballs we common below treeline on all aspects in the afternoon. Warm temps and high-hazy clouds warmed the cold, unconsolidated snow at the surface thanks to the greenhouse effect.
We went to Aspendell to investigate an avalanche that failed midday on January 9th. This is preliminary information. A thorough report is forthcoming.
