Route & General Observations
Went up established skin track to tincan common, didn’t end up going to the top after seeing 3 ski tracks that triggered shallow looking wind slabs
|Elevation||unknown||Slope Angle||36deg||Crown Depth||6in|
We didn't walk up to the slide but it didn't look very deep. I'd estimate <6" but were at least 100 yards away. It looked like there may have been two separate slides that joined together. I took photos but we were too far to see it clearly. The slide was near the southern ridge between hippy bowl and tincan common.
Obvious signs of instability
|Recent Avalanches?||Yes||Collapsing (Whumphing)?||No||Cracking (Shooting cracks)?||Yes|
We also saw a single crack approximately 15' wide. It looked like it had moved a few inches, but hadn't slide.
Some wind above treeline, not blowing hard.
Some wind affected spots.
