Wanted to ski Grizzly Couloir but turned back when when transitionning from TL to ALP. Snow on the ridge was wind affected. We saw numerous cracking around our skis, sometimes propagating between 5 to 10m. We saw evidence of a size 1.5 avalanche in Frequent Flyers, probably skier triggered.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold. Riding quality was ok.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
