Avalanche: Chugach State Park

Location: Little O’Malley

Route & General Observations

Toured to 2500’ on Skier’s Gully in gusty moderate winds from the SE. Wind transportation was intense at all elevations, increasing towards ridge tops. I triggered a small but energetic soft windslab on a rollover at 2400’ without incident. All steep and loaded slopes above 2200’ showed cracking in fresh windslabs.
