I thought the Jan 2 advisory was spot on with the pockets of fresh wind slabs on lee aspects at the
higher elevations�. as well as the statement: �A reminder that south of Turnagain Pass, mainly in the
Summit Lake region, the snowpack has notable differences in its strength and structure. More caution
and snowpack evaluation should be used in this area.�
I spent the weekend at Summit Lake with family and during the drive back saw several fresh naturals in
a number of high elevation bowls from Summit Lk to Hope likely due the wind event Sun
afternoon/evening. Unfortunately, the light was too low to get good photographs, but saw at least a
10 different naturals on South/southwest aspects.
Definitely a cold weekend for touring, but the powder sure has been nice�..Surface hoar is growing at
the low/mid elevations where the wind hasn�t gotten too it��.
