Natural avalanches from yesterday (May 20th) could be seen on all aspects essentially on every slope. Most would be wet loose, or cornice failures, but saw a couple of evidences of slabs. Heard one moving off Blackcomb peak around 2pm but didn't actually see it. Solar radiation was very effective today, melting the top layer of snow on most aspects. N stayed cooler and skied quite well even into the late afternoon. Stayed off the S slopes of Disease ridge as we didn't get there until it was too late. Got some whumpfing on a very mellow S slope.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Heavy, Wet. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was ok.
Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks. Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
