Toured up above Shields Creek on the southeast ridge of Snowslip Mountain to an elevation of 5300 feet and to the top of an avalanche path called “Burnout.” Dug one snowpit here on a southeast facing slope and conducted a full profile. Descended the same route. Also drove multiple times through John F. Stevens Canyon and observed numerous slab avalanches that released in the past 36 hours.
We also noted a larger (approaching D3) avalanche on the southeast face of Shields Mountain in Glacier Park
