We observed 3 avalanches on the pass. One D2 on S side of Loveland, A D3 on the East face of Saphire, and a D2 on the North face of Odessey. There was widespread wind affected snow on Thompson pass and we believe these slide were all wind slabs. We toured up Loveland ridge. On N-NW aspects we saw wind loaded terrain and got consistent failure in our compression tests, CTE Failure 25-30cm down. The SE windward aspects varied greatly, see attached photo
