Multiple loose dry avalanches observed out of steep, cliffy terrain on NW aspects from new storm snow in the area (approx 15cm to 25cm). Several crown lines present, likely triggered by the loose dry activity, however most crown lines appeared quite shallow and did not run far. No snowballing or other signs of instability observed on solar aspects.

Snow conditions were: Powder. We rode: Alpine slopes. We avoided: Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.
