TREND: IMPROVING / ONGOING / DETERIORATING
Things got pretty wet there for a bit. Then as the next low wedged in the temp dropped and the snow started. Out in that muck we ran some field observation, well overdue. We'd noted a few small 'natural' slides out and about. Wednesdays freaky new snowfall has a super subtle crust which is producing fast easy results. By tomorrow morning (Saturday AM) we will likely push the hazard rating to 'Considerable' given that the wet old and the new snow have bonded well enough to provide cohesive 'top heavy' packed pow and wet slabs that are propagating easily under ski. The steeper the easier the trigger due we figure to it being 'top heavy'. Avoid steep leeward terrain (lee to the north and west).
