Avalanche Warning
Bottom Line: Six inches of new snow on a weak foundation makes triggering an avalanche likely today. Avalanches may break wider than you expect or be triggered from flat ground below steeper slope. Staying off of, and out from under, slopes steeper than 30 decrees would be a wise choice while waiting to see how the snowpack reacts to this new load.
Primary Problem: Persistent Weak Layer

Dudley Creek
Snowpack Observation from Dave Combs

Snow depth measured at several locations headed up to ridge, 60 to 65 cm.
Hasty pit revealed no obvious layers in snow pack.
Saw no signs of avalanche activity.
Winds a ridge were light.
Obvious wind loading on east side of ridge, no signs of instability.
Skiing was good considering shallow snow pack (buried hazards) and the developing wind slab down to 300 to 400 feet below ridge.

Lots of wind! Tons of loading and scouring going on. Old tracks were blown in in places and sticking up in others . We bailed on plan A ( bigger couloir ) because of the visual signs of rapid wind loading. We proceeded to plan B and starting getting shooting cracks on small convex rollers. We found a nice small test slope and remote triggered a decent fresh windslab . It was surprising the energy it ran with. We decided to bail on plan b and head home. Remote triggered another smaller wind slab turning around . We turned around and basically skied more sheltered terrain( skin track) back down.
