Observation Date: 02/17/2018
Sensitive soft storm slabs on leeward or wind protected terrain. Saw plenty of small soft, slab releases on steeper (38*+) and convex terrain.
Two failure layers noted: Friday-Saturday new snow interface hasn’t bonded yet (6-8 inches as of 4 pm Saturday). New snow-old snow interface (and facets directly below old snow crust).
Skied conservative terrain, and avoided terrain traps.
Heavy snow. Wind from S and W.
