Observation: Chugach State Park

Location: Mt. Gordon Lyon

Route & General Observations

Skied NW face from ridge top, conditions ranged from old knife-hard surfaces to wind-deposited powder. Released some cute isolated windslabs on steep cross-loaded terrain. The slabs were inconsequential but easy to trigger at my feet.

Avalanche Details

Triggered a few cute soft slabs at my feet while descending. The slabs were inconsequential but easy to trigger, and could be dangerous in an area with more continuity.
