Avalanche: Seward

Location: Mt Eva

Route & General Observations

We toured Mt Eva from Tiehacker Rd up Salmon creek and climber’s right into the trees. The W face if the two open knolls above treeline had natural avalanches that were visible all the way from Salmon creek in the morning. That was likely the snow from last week’s big storm which got quite heavy as temps rised the past couple of days. It looked like the avalanches happened yesterday or the day before (not today). Today we witnessed super strong NWN winds that carried a lot of snow. Everything above treeline was very wind affected, we stayed in the lower angles in the glacier valley between the ridges and didn’t make it to the visible ski tracks from the past few days. It looked like the snow was in a much better condition before yesterday’s warm temps and today’s strong wind.
