Ventured out today. Explored in Wildy Bowl.

Not a strong freeze overnight, with 36 degrees in the parking lot at 0700. Lots of roller balls on north facing aspects below rocks. probably from the storm on Tuesday. Lots of signs of wet avalanches running to the ground on east to south aspects. South aspects melting out quickly with the warm temps. North aspects and shaded areas still have plenty of snow. NE face of Lake Fork looked nice, so does Sin Nombre. In the trees. Like previous post, timing is everything. We skied down at 1030 from the top of coyote. Top was nice and soft, but the wind kept the chute pretty crusty, but down lower was nicely corned up. We barely were able to connect a route down without taking our skis off. In the trees, the expected challenging skiing, but coverage was ok till about 100 yards from the ski area. Last part, we had to pick our way not to hit dirt.
