We snuck in a quick lap on MacDonald Gully #2 this morning before the hazard picked up. Lots of skier triggered sluffing on slopes over 40 degrees that hadn’t previously sluffed or avalanched. There were some cornices overhanging the gully. With continued snowfall, wind, and a small size 1 Na sluff in a side gully (likely triggered by a tree bomb), we decided to bail on our original plan of going back up to ski Gully #1.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy. Riding quality was good.
