General Observations

South face of 3 pigs. Several D2+ natural avalanches that had released from the large storm cycle of 11/12-11/14. Rain line from the most recent storm went above 3200′, and another rain line from the large mid October storm cycle was also present about 1-3′ down (depending on where I was looking). Active wind loading on all the upper elevations above alder line. I triggered a small test slope from the newly wind loaded snow, in which it made me nervous of any larger slopes that were also being wind loaded.
