We went out to investigate how much snowpack we have lost on S/SE/E faces in the past week. We found several avalanche debris fields on these slopes and stumbled onto this Glide avy path that ripped mid way down the chute and potentially ran 800' on Beargrass and bedrock. We probed a snowdepth transect adjacent to the path, see Picture 4, All South facing. Last photo was looking at debris from wet slides occuring adjacent to observed glide avalanche.
6,744' Just below ridgeline on S face; HS 82cm. Shallow pack, rocks? (48.51865, -114.29243)
6,343 ' Near crown and cliff band; HS 138cm. Lots of debris. (48.51670, -114.29235)
6,097' Spotted another Glide Avalanche just lower in chute; HS 149cm. (48.51580, -114.29209)
Up to Skook Peak and down ridgeline to saddle between Dorothy and Skook. South chute to Canyon Creek Road.
Was with Jackson George.
