Backyard avalanche


Wet slide to ground in places up Three Sisters Creek drainage on a NW aspect and lots of cornice release triggered slides on S and E aspects

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.


There was a size 2.5 off a NW aspect that covered tracks from yesterday - it went to ground in places. Likely solar triggered at a thin spot. Lots of evidence of other cornice triggered slides on all aspects
