Avalanche: Chugach State Park

Location: Peak 2

Route & General Observations

I was skinning up peak 2 yesterday and triggered a small avalanche on a wind loaded slope. I skinned up the foot trail that goes up the backside of flattop from the upper rabbit creek parking. As I approached the saddle between flattop and peak 2, I turned east. About half way up peak 2 I triggered a slab avalanche. Luckily I was at the crown and did not get carried.
