Cooker day in Blue Canyon. Two Wet Slab avalanches hit Hwy 50 at the west end of canyon. Cliffs were dripping and lots of active Loose Wet activity during profile. Profile was done in a shady spot to see if suspect weak layer was wetted in the absence of direct radiation (Maybe from rain the evening prior). The suspect layer at 65cm was dry on this NE-facing slope. Avalanches nearby were all E (not NE like profile) and in the sun. Investigation at the bed surface and in the crown of highway-hit avalanches showed layer at 65cm was wetted.
