Found a surprising lack of wind transport and a surprisingly reactive storm slab problem today near Marion Lake.
Marion Lake / Essex Mtn to 6,200'
Soft slabs breaking about 2" to 4" deep, but entraining down to the 2/2 MFcr, all aspects and observed at mid/low elevations. Given the unusually reactive and widely propagating behavior, I suspect the failure layer has some small grained faceting (melt-layer recrystallization?), but my hands were too cold to dork out with a lens.
