Route & General Observations

Drove through Turnagain Pass to Summit Lake around 11:30am and noticed new glide avalanches on Eddies SW face and Corn Biscuit’s SW face. Returned from Summit Lake around 6pm and noticed a very fresh new glide avalanche on SW face of Magnum. Also noticed a newish glide avalanche – likely the last two days on Pete’s South.

Also many existing glide cracks appear to be widening on West to SW aspects – like Lipps, Corn Biscuit, Magnum and Sunburst
