Route & General Observations
Out eddies ridge and down southwest face.
Obvious signs of instability
|Recent Avalanches?||Yes||Collapsing (Whumphing)?||No||Cracking (Shooting cracks)?||No|
Recent slides in steep terrain.
Nice on the ridge with some light gusts that produced some snow devils along the ridge.
Stomped on a windloaded feature that produced about a foot deep crack but was stubborn to release. Nice settled powder otherwise. Some areas with frequent sluffing created a crusty but supportable bed surface. Slopes skied were around the 35 degree mark, plus/minus a few, and sluff was easily managed.
Pit around 32, SW aspect, approx 20 degree slope in a windloaded area. CTV failed within multiple slabs. ECTX. Pit was about 90cm deep and basal facets were present. BSH was about 5cm below surface, probably due to wind transport.
