Skied Marry’s Run this morning. Snow up top was good. Thick crust starting half way down. Dug a quick pit up top for an extended column test. Got a collapse on 6th hit from elbow, but didn’t propagate. Probably recent storm snow. Saw lots of avalanches (see photos) on S and SW aspects (tree triangle, Geronimo, No socks). Lots of tracks on North Bowl, but no avalanches. Sun was baking S aspects around 1 pm. Skiing down Shames runs was fun with crust melted by sun.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder, Wet. Weather conditions were: Warm. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
