A foot of very low-density snow overnight and a touch of winds spurred a round of loose dry and soft slab avalanches in Canyon Creek sometime this morning or before dawn.
Traveled from 6600' to 5300'
Started as a thin soft slab but stepped down mid-track to the uppermost freezing rain crust, about 20" deep. The step down did not propagate much wider than the original slide. It looks like it probably gouged deeper as it continued downslope. Chunks of debris were 4F hard.
Skook Chutes. Crowns were about 1/3 of the way down from the ridgetop start zones.
3 sluffs that were large enough to cross the upper road on Skook, D1.5. Lots of smaller D1 sluffs.
Slopes steeper than 38 degrees
