Wx: NE winds died down throughout the morning leading to clear skies; a second dabble of precip, and more than anticipated, made for low vis throughout the course of the morning and into mid-afternoon. Skies appeared broken by our departure around 1300, and likely S and W aspects may experience loose wet activity, with E aspects remaining intact until further warming tomorrow.
Snow: An average of 2" fell above 6000', with N and E aspects scoured, and lee aspects holding drifts up to 8" thick. We noted three wet loose avalanches off of Mt. Gould, D1.5-2, 8500' ,SW aspect @ 1115 from gradual through-cloud warming of the rock face, though our visibility remained obscured from our location at the saddle around 7500'.
