Dry loose from high alpine in K country


In a day out around Mt Black Prince and Purple Knob, our party observed multiple dry loose avalanches starting in the high alpine. We were in the area from about 10:30-1pm, and started hearing/seeing activity with the arrival of snowfall around 11:30am. Start zones we observed were around 2500M along the E aspect of the Mt Black Prince ridge. We did not observe any activity triggered on lower slopes by falling snow.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Stormy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.


No observed activity triggered on lower slopes.
