Touchy storm slabs


Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Mellow slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.


We skied lee side N/NE and convex rolls would release just with the added weight of a skier. It would release on the Wed snow slab over the sun crust. I have a video of the 1.5 size avalanche but no pictures. We also skied S facing and did not see any avalanche activity, even with significant ski cutting on convex rolls.
