A slab avalanche popped out by the moraine a few days ago in the upper Fitzsimmons drainage.

At 2280meters the temperature was -3, and winds were 0-10 KPH from the SSE as of 06:00 hrs.
At 1550 meters the temperature was +.5, 75 % relative humidity and the barometer is on a downward trend.
In the valley it is +3.
Should be some rest corn skiing again today with the cooler temps last night.

Yesterday started out with a few showers but later in the day it was quite pleasant.

The shadows appeared as the day progressed.
