South Ghost Avalanche

CBERTOLINI

Avalanche

While climbing Aquarious we witnessed two large avalanches which I believe occured in the same bowl which contains The Joker and other climbs. The forecast was 2-2-2 for the Banff area and 3-2-2 for K-Country. The first avalanche occured minutes after the sun came out and the 2nd occured about 20 minutes later. There had been moderate snowfall for about 45 minutes earlier in the day. Times, locations and elevations in this report are approximate. Good reminder that the Ghost is not always free of avalanche hazard.
