Today we went into the northern Whitefish Range to assess wind slabs and get a grasp on the 2/1 crust/facet combo.
A stout crust and the lack of wind slabs and little new snow made us feel comfortable skiing slopes greater than 35 degrees. Click here for video.
I labeled these as wet loose because the debris piles were wet. Unknown if they started as dry and entrained wet snow on the way down. No crowns identified.
Two D2 avalanches. One on the ENE face of Link Mountain and one came off of the NE path off Red Meadow Mountain. It was challenging to ID debris from afar but they mostly looked dry. Red Meadow slide was one that could have been more likely to entrain wet snow down low.
