Around 11:30am Our party observed approximately 20 loose dry sluffs coming out of steep terrain lookers left and lookers right of Bell Couloir. 4 of these sluffs entrained enough mass to become quite audible which were likely in the size 1 range. Quite a lot of wind transport on ridge top (coming from the S-SW)during this period which we expected caused this show. Temperature noted at -6 during this observation. Also noted a lot of wind transport at the top of the couloir during this period. Quite the show, and a red flag for us to continue with our planned objective.
