Noticed Size 1.5 slab avalanche likely sympathetic from loose wet in an east facing path start from mid path, likely 50cm deep, 50m across but could not see how far it ran. No new snow from last night. Stayed very sunny n calm today and surprisingly cool despite the sun's effort, likely the angle and aspect has alot do to with the preservation of the snow currently.
