Weather: Clear, cool, light winds.
Snowpack: Recent snow mainly right side up and good skiing. No signs of instability. Local wind affected/blown snow on ridge above Saddle Bowl but not enough for slab layers and weak layers lacking. We figured moderate avalanche danger near and below treeline.
Area Description: Chinook Pass
Avalanches: One previous SS crown on very steep rocky east facing cliffs of Yakima Peak.
