Written Report:
No avalanche problems to report today... except potential cornice falls.

Last Wednesday's widespread wet avalanche debris is still evident on many steeper slopes. If you find smooth areas w/o debris, the melt/freeze snow surface is great. Its been slightly more "freeze" than "melt", so loose wet problems have not been an issue.

Loose Wet problems on sunny slopes will be on my radar as temps climb up a bit Wed and Thurs...

Temps reached 39F @7500' today with light SW winds and the occasional snow shower.
