We remote triggered a sz0.5 on a small convexity around 2200m in the alpine. We also saw shooting cracks around the same elevation. There had been no signs of instability below that on our ascent. We decided to turn around there. Snow quality was light and deep but became slightly more cohesive throughout the day. 2 large sluffs came down off the Ogden wall around 3pm.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy, Warm, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks. Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
