Excellent conditions on Rainbow Ridge. Fresh snow has been blown around into unconsolidated drifts that range from 3 in. to 3 ft. deep. In general, the new snow seems to have bonded very well to the old crust in this area. Windslabs are definitely a concern and are highly variable in terms of their density, depth, and bond with the old snow. Observed about 5 natural slides (size D2) on west facing slopes just off the Canwell Glacier. Looked like the crowns were about 18-24 in deep, probably the depth of the new snow.
