Observed multiple glide cracks, a storm slab crown (top right of image), and a wet loose avalanche all in the exact same spot about halfway down the main south gulley of Dorothy.
These were all at least a couple of days old based on a couple inches of newer dry snow that had fallen on top. Otherwise observed little signs current instability aside from a 1-2in thick melt-freeze crust that readily broke off on the most sunny aspects.
