Got a closer look at the aftermath of Tuesday night’s storm. Every aspect had avalanches on it, mid slope, in trees, this storm didn’t discriminate. Snow had settled from Wednesday and travel was easier and more supportive. Warm sun had us skiing a west aspect and exiting at 1:30 pm. And of note, we had already see wet loose on a west aspect by 1:30. Forecast for the day was spot on in this area.
Cold start to the morning. Wind was chilly, but once out of the wind in the sun, things were heating up quickly. This was at 1:00 pm.

We stayed off of wind affected terrain, in the shade, and felt comfortable skiing in avalanche terrain that had ran during Tuesdays storm. We exited early afternoon to minimize afternoon warming hazard.Close
