Avalanche Conditions

A friend and I skied a lap in the Chuting Gallery area off of Disease Ridge today during the storm.
It was snowing heavily all day with Strong to Moderate winds out of the northwest. These winds were reverse loading exposed terrain BTL and above and building very touchy windslabs. We remotely triggered several size 1 soft slab avalanches on 35 degree convex features BTL. They were about 30cm deep and failing within the storm snow (4F Slab over F). The upper snowpack is upside down with 40cm of snow on the recent crust at 1900m.
We decided to pull the plug and head back inbounds.
