Thanks Jim. Your Dana report was sweet and added hope - especially after seeing some of those burnt Virginia lakes pics.

Things didn't really work out with the time off though so I'll be hitting the mtb instead.

Wondering what things look like in the NE couloir of Humphrey's, can anyone chime in with beta? TIA

Is anyone else a little sketched about this weekend's conditions?

If reports are correct, it's looking low to mid-40's at high altitude (~9,000 feet) overnight. Clear skies and wind can help bring snow freezing temp back up a bit, but I dunno about mid-40's.

I dunno, it's my first BC season so I'm still a dunce about this stuff, but I'm not sure what's gong to be fun or safe to ride this weekend on the Eastside or the lower Cascades.

It seems it will cool off a little by Saturday. I would guess most natural and skier triggered wet slides will happen in the next couple of days. Snow falling off rocks, cornices failing and steep waterlogged slopes releasing.

I would suggest stay high, ride north facing and descend early and don't be below slide proned areas later in the day. Or just go fishing and swimming.
