We spent a morning in the clouds on some very wet heavy snow on Anif. We were able to drive to snowline just below the washout at 950m. We found no propagation or fractures on an ECT at 1500m on an E aspect. The snowpack is very heavy, wet, and consolidated. As we toured up steeper terrain we began knocking down several sz 0.5 wet loose slides that slurpeed down the slope. Check out the pictures. We were in clouds the entire day but found a little sunshine on the drive out at noon.

Snow conditions were: Heavy, Wet. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Foggy. We rode: Mellow slopes. Riding quality was terrible.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
