Avalanche reporters find slushy conditions

WINTER SPORTS -- "We had it going on for a while, the melt-freeze I mean," said Kevin Davis in today Idaho Panhandle Avalanche Center weekly forecast.  

"Last weekend the conditions were great and if you could have had this week off you would have been getting into some corn snow conditions. No solid overnight freeze put an end to that and you'll find slushy snow prevailing.  

"Possibly a little dust on crust up north and to the south will be slush on slush.  

"Be careful on steep terrain if you venture out today and this weekend.  Use you spring travel techniques.  I'll post that next week.  This is our last official advisory this winter."
