Today we went into the Flathead Range to try to gain more information on a possible recent avalanche off Mt. Cameahwait and to see how solid the freeze was overnight. The valley floor is still littered with evidence of the 2/1 Deep Slab and we couldn't find any obvious fresh piles of debris. Flat light and new snow made assessing debris piles and crown challenging. We did not access the crown due to overhead cornice hazard.
Given the lack of instabilities and a recent surface crust, we felt comfortable skiing steep terrain with adequate spacing.
General locations. Most every southerly facing path had debris in it. Ranged from D1 to D1.5.
