Avalanche Control on Mt. Field Highway paths produced results up to size 3. Generally initiating as a storm slab, 60 cm deep, with some propagation as the avalanche descended. Two avalanches stopped mid track and a third ran over the Silk Tassel Ice Climb into the runout. One the the Mt. Field start zones had evidence of a slab release during the storm with extensive propagation.
