Comments: Great skiing above 6k! Storm slab began to be reactive above 6.4k on 35-40 degree aspects. No slides triggered but cracks in top 6-8 inch slab and easy failure with isolated column. Ski cut did not trigger slide. Lapped 30-35 degree N/nw aspects from 5.8-6.2k with no slab activity and pleasant skiing.
