Several WL-N-R1-D1-I on East facing slopes off the ridge. Looks like new snow cross loaded off the ridge slid in the morning Sun.
Whumphing noises, shooting cracks. collapsing
Obvious avalanche path
Toured up Alto Diablo to ski the lower NE facing cirque. Slopes NW through NE held good supportable spring snow all day with varying quality depending on time of day. Sheltered, steep, true north facing slopes were still cold pow.
Several E facing slopes had cycled on top of a pretty greasy bed surface. WL snow I presume from the most recent storm. We observed one natural that almost made it to the flats below the N ridge. Nothing that would bury you but definitely knock you over!
Around 4:30pm we traversed through an east facing slope. Snow was refrozen but noticeably unsupportable.
