Recreational Observation

East Slopes Central - Lake Chelan to South of I-90

March 4, 2017, noon PST

Snowpack: 40-50cm above Feb. 14 crust. Two clean easy shears in top 30cm. Failed on crust, CTE Q1 @50cm. Easiest shears I've seen in a long time.

Area Description: Near Mt. Cashmere , ENE aspect, 5000-6500ft.

Avalanches: Debris evident from yesterday's warm up. Large cornice failure triggered widespread 50cm slab below, R3D2. There were other groups in the area but assume this was natural sometime this AM. Another party remote triggered a small terrain feature causing an R1D1 slide aprox. 20m wide and 30m long.
