Avalanche Details

Cropleys slid under the lookers left cliff band sometime over the previous 24hrs but likely on the PWL during last nights warming with inversion temps hitting 37f. A wide lobe of wet debris is visible at the base of the slope. Flat light made it hard to pick out other slopes but several other slopes appeared to host fresher crowns.
