Very warm and a lot of direct sun. We were digging a pit across the drainage and observed several wet, loose slides around 2 pm.
We skied S aspect which was 4 inches of blower on skin up and by 2:30 pm it had become almost slushy. The crust below was supportable up high and not noticeable down lower. Pit profile from northern aspect attached. Surface Hoar on shady aspects was fairly large and not affected by temps during the heat of the day We observed 3 decent sized wet, loose slides on steep, rocky, S facing terrain.
