After a quick stop to check on wind slabs on a favored ridge line, we snaked our way around middle elevation terrain to monitor the persistent slab problem in the Southern Whitefish Range.
After seeing that we could trigger stiffer wind slabs below cornices, and after getting propagating results in a snowpack structure that was consistent everywhere we went, we chose to ride planar and concave slopes less than 35 degrees with no wind affect. Those choices rewarded us with low angled, gladed powder skiing at it's best, and we didn't have a care in the world.
10" thick, 4F hard slab ran on older, 1F wind slab bed surface.
