TREND: IMPROVING / ONGOING / DETERIORATING
Instabilities exist at the interface between the new (30th) and old (27th) with some skier triggered slides occurring late in the day yesterday. there are some on the ground observations from yesterday afternoon, accompanying data at the bottom of the page. Considerable avalanche hazard in the backcountry. If you have any other observations to support this forecast, natural slides, triggered slides or profile assessments let us know via email@example.com
The precip today came (sideways) as grapuel and provided some good supportive skiing, particularity where it had accumulated but not consolidated. In my travels there was minimal slab like properties asides from very isolated features, however I suspect that as I venture out tomorrow immediate lees will be stiffer and upwards of 40cm deep. Caution will be needed when approaching larger steeper features and I suggest that skier triggered avalanches are likely.
Late in the day there was a skier accidental triggered by another party on a frequent flyer inbounds. The information Iv'e received is firsthand but the reporting party offers limited valuable insight. Estimated as size 1.5, 30m wide 20m long, unknown crown, deposition 60cm deep. The first skier travelled low under a cornice and triggered the slope above, they were swept of their feet and carried 10m and were buried to the knees. The two skiing behind were also swept off their feet and carried a short distance. Jacob Fisher.
The weather is set to warm now and visibility to improve so as this warming occurs we should see a dip in already poor stability before things become more cohesive, take care out there folks.
