December 19, 2014, Mt. Baker backcountry

1-3 feet of moderate density cohesive new over the hard base. Toured up toward Artist point, descending lower angle stuff, and traversing steeper winter skin track, and then over first roll to valley floor. Came upon an apparently natural slide on a roll over at approx 4,700 feet, 150 yards skiers left of area boundary.

Blueberry chutes & similar high angle lines next couple days not a good idea.

Overall terrain well covered and skied well.

Photo of slide mentioned above; observed what appeared to be another likely patrol cut line on pan face.
