Zone or Region:
Hazard Lake Area
Just North of Grass Mtn Lakes
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes
Size 1: Relatively harmless to people
Just North of Grass Mtn Lakes . old debris, 2 foot chunks of cornice debris likely from 1/20-1/21 about 50 feet wide just below existing ridgeline. Likely happened during the storm.
PAC toured just north of Grass Mtn Lakes under sunny skies and sustained 20 mph South winds. Good stability and good soft snow in wind-sheltered areas. Some wind affect on the surface of the last 4-5 inches, and in some areas the wind has blown it all away. We did find fairy well-preserved surface Hoar under the last 4-5” in lower protected areas and on the snow surface as well as some near-surface facets producing hard Q2 results in the upper foot of the snowpack that lack propagation.
