General Observations

Over the last few days I have noticed that there are Glide Cracks on NE Crudbuster, NW Crudbuster, NE Python and E Stone mountain.  All of these have had full depth releases with the exception of the one on Python.  The areas that slid are all very small in relation to the slope they were on and have overidden the snowpack below instead of triggering further slides below.  These Glide Cracks seem to be a fairly rare occurence for thompson pass, so it may be something to look out for.  I've been told there others out there that have yet to release.   The elevations of these have all been in the 3500-4000' range.
