Avalanche: Turnagain

Location: Wolverine

Route & General Observations

Skied various aspects on Wolverine. 5 inches of storm snow in sheltered areas, 12 inches where loaded, 0 inches where wind-scoured (even mid face). Triggered two small slabs on mid slope, east aspect at 3,600 feet. Of note these slides were triggered by the second and third skiers. Slides were contained to new snow, were 6-9 inches deep and not in especially wind loaded locations. Bigger slab was apprx 50 ft X 50 ft (pic attached), though slid for a few hundred feet more. Other slide wasn’t as wide, but propagated the width of the chute. Corn snow at 2000 ft on west aspect at 645 PM. Notable sun impact on solar aspects at all elevations.
