Today we went into the Flathead Range to assess new snow hazards and enjoy some fresh snow. The snow quality was superb and we only had to manage isolated problems.
Today we decided early that we did not want to tango with north-facing aspects where a weaker structure exists. We skied steep avalanche terrain on southwest and southeast aspects where a strong melt-freeze crust exists below the new snow.
Many slabs failed on east and southeast aspects. Observed a few on northwest as well.
Observed old debris piles that likely ran Feb 10th during other observed wet loose activity.
