General Observations

We skied a bit up Trims Cr and bushwhacked to the ridge. We camped and skied out Michael Cr on Sunday. As soon as the sun hit the snow on Saturday morning it turned into an isothermal mess and started creating wet slabs with shooting cracks. If the weather stays warm like this, wet slabs will definitely be a hazard to watch for. We dug two snow pits near our camp in the afternoon. Both were N aspect, 40deg slope, at 4600', and were about 10m apart. We also dropped a cornice onto the slope in the evening, and nothing triggered. There was avalanche debris on both sides of Michael Cr
