05 Jan - classroom

I do not have any first hand reports to offer from the field today as I was indoors all day teaching an AST class (not cheesy promotion of my work, just explaining why I missed another day!) From the valley I could see a few large slab avalanches in the alpine from recent wind and storm snow, and also have reports of recent significant activity at treeline and across the alpine. Not a good time to be pushing big terrain.
