Notes

From e-mail: "...today in Hyalite, we were able to get the new snow to slide easily on the older suncrust/windcrust. The new snow was very low density and not cohesive at all. However, places, where the underlying suncrust was most prevalent the snow slid easily. Generally it was just 'sluffs' or small dry/loose avalanches. Enough to knock you off your feet."
