Brandywine area last week, natural slide on wind loaded feature.               Erik Graham Photo

As of 06:00 hrs the temperature at 2280 meters was - 8, winds were 25-40 KPH from the S. At 1550 meters the temperature was - 4.5, 97 % relative humidity and the barometer was rising. 15 cm of new snow fell over night there and 15 cm at pig alley. In the valley it is -1.

Avalanche control yesterday produced size 1-2 soft slabs in the corridor.  Be wary of the February 8 Th interface, certainly would produce size 3 and with this new snow the interface from March 24 Th certainly has some size 2 potential.

Looks like the Kyber, hope they have the appropriate gear: Trees are not always a Safe Place
