Written Report:
Toured from Tam Rim to Broken Hand to Happy Valley... the last two days have been very warm with no freezing overnight. Today started to cool off a bit, but it was still 49F at 7000' at 11:00am with light rain. These warm temps have caused cornices to start dropping. 4 large size cornices fell on North Facing terrain at Tam Rim. There were also numerous loose wet surface slides, two of them in the Orchard Bowl were large enough to bury people. Its supposed to cool off and get below freezing tonight, this will help lock things up.
