Notes

From an email:

"...observed lots of natural avalanches in Beehive Basin today. My partner counted 12+ including this one... All avalanche activity was on E or NE slopes which had been hammered by the winds. We found soft, more stable (ECTX) snow on SE aspects, although still found the bottom 2’ of snowpack to be rotted into <1mm facets, resting below the fresh 2’ slabs. Not reactive in our tests but there was lots of collapsing and this layer will become an issue with a heavier, more cohesive load."
