Recent evidence of natural wet slab and wet loose avalanches ranging from sz 1-2, sw-E aspect. Skier triggered wet slab on SE aspect sz 1. Runout was approx 5m on 35° slope. Top 30cm is wet and heavy on top of a crust. Skier triggered slides are likely with a short runout, however, on large open aspects could compound into sz 2 and larger more dangerous slides. 145cm @ 2100m skiable to about 1600m give or take.
