Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Foggy, Stormy, Wet. We rode: Open trees, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.

Avalanche

Skier on T1 south just after it was opened triggered a size 1.5 loose avalanche in bounds. He lost a ski and was carried 30m or so before coming to a stop just above a concerning cliff band. Be careful out there folks! New snow seems pretty reactive. There was evidence of storm slab all over the Terminator ridge (cracking, whumpfs), which makes me think the KH backcountry may be dicey.
