Notes

We rode to Lulu pass and had enough visibility to see a N-SS-R1-D2 slide on the big Henderson slide path.

We could also see at least five N-SS-R1-D1.5 slides along Miller Bench (between Miller and Wolverine).

And, a couple wide R2-D2 crowns on Miller Ridge.

All 1-2' deep, not very wide. Likely ran the last day or two after 2-3' of heavy spring snow earlier this week.
