North facing canyon laps today. Battled mid and low elevation winds to find Flower Point surprisingly untouched. Initial ski cutting and stomping on test slopes resulted in significant sluffing (dry loose) on slopes steeper than 38 degrees. These sluffs ran for 3-400 feet until the slope angle dropped back and only entrained the top low-density snow. They did not step down or propogate but would have taken you for a ride (see photo of a ski cut above a steep 40 degree rollover). We managed the hazard by skiing one at a time never above each other. No other signs of instability.
