Dec. 30, 2017, noon PST

Weather: Warm and damp, partly cloudy with some light rain/snow. Snow level around 3000ft. No plumes visible on ridges but visibility was limited.

Area Description: Southeast Face of Dirty Face

Avalanches: The SE Face of Dirty Face ran during the storm as a slab in both of the start zones; SS-N-D2 x 2. They started at about 5400ft on a SE aspect and ran to mid track, stopping above where the two gullies converge. There were also numerous loose dry avalanches in the bowl that happened more recently.
