Written Report:
Snow conditions remain melt freeze with an emphasis on the freeze part. Cool daytime temperature and light winds have been keeping the snow surface firm for most of the day. Only slopes with direct sun have been softening up. Hence there have been no wet avalanche problem in the W - N - E facing terrain at Tam. No cornices have collapsed.
