Avalanche: Turnagain

Location: Seattle Ridge

Route & General Observations

Road observation en route to field day. There is yet another new glide release in the Skookum drainage. We also observed a new glide release on the northern end of Seattle Ridge’s East face. We took a photo of the glide activity on Seattle Ridge farther south where it is easy to visualize the entire snowpack in motion as it folds and sags below the existing cracks.
