Day off snowmobile ride up McGinnis to play in some low-angle terrain at low elevations. New snow depths on the road averaged around 2 feet, though we never really stopped to measure. Certainly over the hood!
All the signs were there to stay off of and out from underneath avalanche terrain. We both agreed that slopes above 30 degrees were out for today. We even felt uneasy about being underneath a slope that probably averaged 28 degrees in steepness.
Never stopped to look at crowns. Appeared they are within storm snow due to depth.
