The other two photos are from the approach road below the meadow at about 6600', I was able to step off the skin track and get a good collapse and a 40’ shooting crack in the storm slab which was sitting on facets. I tried to isolate a quick ECT in this area and it failed on isolation. This area has a bunch of good little mid elevation test slopes right along the road.
I also tried ski cutting a steep northwest -facing rollover with no results.
The lack of in your face red flags such as cracking and collapsing on the east side has the potential to lure folks into tricky situations.
Exposed Southerly aspects were scoured and only had a minimal amount of storm snow.
There was a thin zipper crust on all aspects. I'm thinking perhaps a quick flash of rain?
Based on what I saw on the approach road, we were traveling as per considerable hazard protocols.
