Written Report:
Three of us skied the SE face of Mt. Mcloughlin on Saturday, 2/22/20. A warm blue bird day with little to no wind. Arrived at the summit at 12:30pm. Skied the SE face off the summit at 1pm. Snow was perfect spring corn for the first 1,000 ft. Lower down the SE face, into the lower glades, we triggered two small wet loose slides on a steeper convex slope.

Very much so spring like conditions on Mt. Mcloughlin. Timing was very important for ascent and descent.
