Sheding season is here. Mid afternoon we watched several slides run 2000 to 3000 feet on the south faces in port valdez. Point releases as well as slabs with visible fracture lines.

Toured up Moonlight today. At the base there was a lot of rotten snow (2110’) and conditions gradually improved till it firmed up around 3100’. We dug a pit and performed a compression test and found no instability. The ski down was consistent with good skiing was had.

Dug on a NW aspect below Stairway Chutes at 3800' on the glacier above Small Creek. Structure in the upper snowpack is 7cm new snow over a hard windboard to 20cm. The windboard is knife hardness and below is pencil hardness rounds and rounding facets. Did not evaluate below 120cm. No results on compression tests.
