Written Report:
Scooted around Tam Rim and observed several small-medium avalanches. The largest looked probably natural and the other smaller ones looked skier cut-triggered. All were on wind-loaded east(ish)-facing slopes. We scoped out the terrain and determined that some lower angle NW-facing slopes seemed more stable (and far less wind loaded) and we had a good time skiing those. Through the trees was also awesome cold deep snow!
