Mt. Archibald


Remote triggered a size 2 wind slab on our final ascent to the summit of Mt. Archibald. Released from near ridgetop on the NE face. All Northerly aspects appeared wind loaded, with strong winds and intense wind transport ongoing at all elevations. Crown lines on steep N'ly aspects still visible from several recent natural size 1.5 wind slabs. Many southerly aspects have been scoured down to ground. Cold temps throughout the day with periods of cloud and flurries. See photos for skier remote.
