Today we went looking for wind slabs and found some from the last day or two on north through east facing aspects at higher elevations. At treeline and lower elevations on southerly terrain there were slides that looked like they ran with the recent warm temperatures on the deeper sugary facets. We also found pockets of good riding below the wind zone. What do you think of this slide: is it just a wind slab or did it go wide because of those old sugary facets?

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
