South Rockies

Warm day today so we planned to be done early and back home before the heat really kicked in. We found dry snow on north aspects above 2000 m in the morning but it was quickly deteriorating and by the time we left it was starting to roller ball and become moist. We measured +10 at 1850 m! Some light gusts helped to stay cool but no snow was moving around. On sunny slopes, there is about 5 cm of wet snow over several layers of crust which had not broken down by about 2 pm when we left. We saw several small (size 1) and 1 large (size 2) wet loose avalanches from steep solar slopes with great visibility.
