Written Report:
Tam Rim has seen a melt freeze cycle for the past week. But cold temps and light NW wind have made for more freeze and less melt. Skiers have found soft corn skiing on slopes in the direct sun around mid day... these surfaces have not been warming up enough create any wet loose problems.

Even thought there is plenty of debris from wet slabs, wet loose slides and cornice falls, there has been no action for the past week. Temps will have to climb before we see wet slides return, but the cornices could fall at anytime.
