Short fitness skin up the lower '5000' alder glades. As per forecast highly variable direction wind effect at micro and meso scales even well below treeline in open avalanche paths. Some no cohesion powder and variable pockets of stiff windslab. We had touchy results stomping micro pockets with shooting cracks paralell to the slope. We turned around at treeline where the powder starting fading to more consistent wind effect. We observed evidence of multiple cross loaded gully walls failing at size 1 to 1.5 but starting to fill in. Lower king Louie path had evidence of multiple small deposits stopping high in the runout with minimal mass.
