Totally fun. Saw some amazing pics from one of the passes yeaterday. Full on blower. Thin of course but it sounded like at 12k it was around 16".

Keep in mind this was the "freebie". If this doesn't all melt, which it probably won't, there will be real avy danger. There was a woman(maybe a man) killed on a grassy slope with thin coverage like this in the late 90's I believe. Got carried into trees or rocks died from trauma.

There is a recorded avalanche death in every month of the year in this state, so keep your eyes open. It should be obvious and easy to avoid as long as you are looking for it.

Sorry to be the buzzkill. This is fun shit going on right now.
