Route & General Observations

Standard sled uptrack to minus one bowl.

Many whomps on the ridge line however this seemed to be from the wind event before the last round of storms. Storm snow was unconsolidated however light winds were beginning to form it up and give it an upside down feel at the last clump of trees below the ridge.

Avalanche Details

While traveling up the standard uptrack we noticed a small powder cloud at the bottom of repeat offender. We were concerned about a group that had passed us previously on the ski track but decided that they could never t have made it that far and all other parties were accounted for so we continued uphill for our second lap. Upon the completion on skiing some primo snow we stopped to look and indeed there was a small crown from one of the catchment ridges lookers left of the uptrack. Looked to be a small loose wind slab d1.5 perhaps.
