From BSSP: "There was considerable cornice growth... in most cases, natural failure sometime early morning, triggering recent wind slabs. Shots were producing very local results, with the exception of orbit in the gum wall, failing size 2 on storm/old snow interface. Also, low on the west wall, an east aspect, we had a 2’ crown triggered by cornice failure. This failed on a maybe week-old interface and partly filled the terrain trap. Similar stubborn results were observed on route, but once warmed up, these slabs became active in lenin, dirtbag wall, and hanging valley triggered on skis this afternoon. The upper a-z’s, pinnacles, and dirt bag wall were problematic with natural wet loose failure in most areas by late afternoon, running on previous melt/freeze crust.
In the backcountry, fan mtn and cedar mtn failed well into older layers on east aspects from cornice failure, up to size 3-sizeable avalanches."
