Big Jo, east bowl
New Snow: 3-6″
Pinball went sometime in the past week, the lower gully was jam packed with what looked like wet slab debris. I imagine it slid during last week’s rain event. The crown from last week’s avalanche on the east bowl headwall was completely filled in. Nothing else observed.
Pretty thin, faceted snowpack overall below 8000ft, capped by a rain crust all the way to tree line. Between last week’s rain and wind event, surface conditions were variable and pretty marginal.
