Written Report:
Skied the steep slope above Booth Lake. Kicked off rollerballs on steep S-SE faces as early as 9a.

Saw a naturally released wet loose slough from snow falling off of cliffs.

Triggered wet-loose slough on SE aspect later in the day, snow ran 50-80yds downslope, though did not entrain much laterally. Snow slid on previous crust.

Once the temps warmed in the morning snow was playful and fun. About 6" of soft snow on top of the crust on the east aspects, closer to 2" on west aspects.
