Snow Observations List
Triggered a small slide underneath the cornice of the southeast chute off of Emigrant peak. The slide was 50 ft wide, 4 inches deep, and ran for about 100 ft. The slide was not large enough to knock you off your feet (D1). The latest storm had deposited about 12 inches of new snow underneath the cornice.
other older slides were visible on a wind loaded NW oriented slopes at the bottom of the basin. Still feels like winter out there with lots of light snow up high!Full Snow Observation Report

There were some older crowns below a cornice to the north of mt fox (second photo) with slide debris that extended down the whole face (600ft).
