Avalanche: Turnagain

Location: Tincan Ridge (CFR) observed from the trees

Route & General Observations

Skier triggered avalanche along the Tincan lower ridgeline. Seen from a distance in the trees.

This is about midway down the Tincan ridge (CFR) from the top of common bowl, where you can drop off the ridge and are on top of the fall line to ski down the gulley on the north side of the dome (Jerome’s Dome). I believe it’s referred to as dog leg.
