Headed out for OB1 but backed off and skied Zola. Rapid snowfall accumulation and wind loading had extensive wind and storm slab development in open terrain at treeline. Had a size 1 remote trigger in a small convex feature on the skin up. We were definitely tip-toeing.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
