Traveled to Rescue Creek in the Flathead Range for two reasons. First, we wanted to observe wet loose avalanche activity associated with the warm sunny weather of 3/10 and 3/11. Secondly, FAC staff (Flathead National Forest employees) wanted to help Glacier National Park Rangers become familiar with new terrain, on the other side of the tracks, in the event of a future Search and Rescue mission. Interagency response and cooperation is vital for all backcountry SAR incidents.
Slides started at both upper and mid elevations.
