Recent avalanche activity
Recent loading by new snow, wind, or rain
2nd and 3rd photo, an old cornice drop induced avalanche as I approached the ridge. The crown and cornice have already filled back in. 4th photo, As I was walking above where the cornice in the above photos broke, I remotely triggered a new cornice break from a few feet away, it broke back further than expected even while I was at a safe distance. Broke about 40’ wide and gouged down into old snow over what was likely the crown/path of the original break.
I did not have any collapsing or whoomphing today. I treated my ECTNs as a false negative and traveled with caution.
My take on hazard is considerable on the north half of the compass. The PAC forecast from the last 2 days is spot-on, thanks!
Thanks to all that came and donated at the pints for PAC!
