Location: South/SW side Jefferson, about 6500'
Riding Conditions: Good
Snow Conditions: Wet
Terrain Ridden: Mellow slopes, Dense trees, Open trees, Sunny slopes
Avoided: Steep slopes
The Day Was: Warm

Additional Comments:
Had been rather warm since bit of snow a few days earlier, so we avoided open slopes with any size or steepness -- steeper angles were quite solid in the trees, thankfully. On the only substantial open slope, about 20-25 degrees, west/SW facing, 2pm, the top 1-2" triggered (pretty much as expected) from the weight of finishing a turn to pause and assess before entering. Oozed downhill very slowly (walking speed) for nearly a minute -- providing a safe path to follow.

Belated report, but the site seems quiet.

Thanks for all those who send in more promptly -- I watch them all year, even from afar.
