Avalanche: Turnagain

Location: Tincan Trees

Route & General Observations

On Friday, 3/19/22, my wife and I were on our 2nd Tincan lap and at a steep convex rollover we came up on a small avalanche that had been triggered by a previous group that day. We also triggered a small avalanche on that same slope. The slope at the roll over was probably 40 degrees. The crown was about 8-10 inches deep and about 25 feet wide. The slab slid on what appeared to be the buried surface hoar layer. No one was caught in the slide that I know of. Approximate GPS 60.79199, -149.17186.
