Beautiful views. Lots of sunshine. Lower elevation snow appeared to have little cohesion and we saw evidence of some wet slab activity across the valley in low elevation, steep, south-facing start zones. Otherwise the snow felt well consolidated and travel conditions were excellent.

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