    Yeah, three triggered and one natural. Sunday had a big triggered slide in Duchess. This was on Little Headwall - we didn't venture further into the bowl beyond the rescue cache. Even on LH a skier further right of us triggered a small slide. Sketchy day to be out but great snow if you could make good assessments on where to travel safely.
    All skiing is good. Some skiing isn't as good. But all skiing is good.

    That will change by the day. Anyone who tells you a specific day/week/arbitrary time period to definitely go is doing you a disservice.

    Check the MWAC reports: http://www.mountwashingtonavalanchecenter.org/

    Right now there is still a lot of fluctuation - considerable to low and back to considerable in a three day time period, and different ratings on different aspects. I wouldn't make a plan to "hit Tucks on X day," but to say "if conditions are good this day, we can go."

    Well I can tell you the snow pack appeared to be about 3' in Bonus Woods at Wildcat. That glade ends at about 2500' elevation

    I'm happy for the conditions but won't make it this spring, maybe Memorial day slackfest, but I doubt it. Hopefully slow dry warmup ,hate to see a headwall blowout .
