Written Report:
I toured on south and southeast slopes near and above treeline. The sun was out and the snow started to soften around 10:30am on slopes in the direct sun. By noon, slopes in the sun were in prime shape for skiing.

I observed several previous small wet loose avalanches that probably occurred in the last few days on steep south facing slopes above treeline.

Today, the snow did not warm up enough to bring on wet loose avalanches.

I observed no avalanche activity and no signs of unstable snow.

There are still some isolated cornices on high ridge tops....be cautious when approaching ridges.
