Lizard Range and Flathead

Triggered a small slide on a convex roll. Failed on probable surface hoar layer. Crown 30cm - didn’t run far as it was a small feature and we were avoiding avalanche terrain and micro avalanche features. Side note: We saw one guy on ridge 2000 who was carried in a 1.5 (separate incident). Super touchy out there.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Windy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.


Small slide. Avoided the convex roll and steep slope in fish bowl because of the instability on the lizard range.
