Notes

From skiers in Cooke 1/9/21:

"Observed a couple of recent, new snow, wind slab avalanches that appeared to occur during the storm.  Upper elevation, N-E aspects, all very steep, wind loaded terrain.  Most appeared to be triggered by cocornicealls, and nothing propagated very wide from what I could tell."

"Wind slab on East face of Sheep mountain today. D1.5,mid slope".
