Route & General Observations
We completed the Bomber Traverse over two days and observed at least 5 large wet slides…one on the approach to the Mint Hut we saw as it happened. These slides were large in size and enough to bury or injury a person. The other slides were on the exit from Snowbird at the beginning of the Reed Lakes Trail. Be safe out there when it heats up! We didn’t stick around to do any skiing on the traverse due to warm conditions.
