Observation: Hatcher Pass

Location: Summit road tour

Route & General Observations

Skinned up summit road to get a look at conditions around April bowl, Hatch Common, 1000$ run, and SE aspect of skyscraper. We didn’t observe any avalanches today but there were multiple avalanches and debris noted from the SE aspect of skyscraper. The largest crossed over summit road and down the other side. Clear evidence of wind transport with exposed ridges and several obvious medium to hard (four finger to one finger) wind slabs present on open meadows. Skid down the road and some open meadows below skyscraper. Minor whumpfing and collapsing but no shooting cracks visible. Stayed on green terrain.
