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

Incident

Two consecutive loose dry avalanches hit us from above while boot packing up near the top of kindergarten couloir. We were both sent down the slope uncontrollably twice. These slides were likely triggered by snowfall and wind at ridge top. Some gear was lost but no injuries.
