Whoomph!

Sea To Sky

Triggered a large Whoomph on a small convex roll just above circle lake, shooting cracks radiated above us for up to 5m in either direction, spaced up to 1m apart. We dug down on the first fracture line and found it to be 150cm deep sitting on faceted snow, just above the Jan rain crust. The area around circle lake is extremely wind affected, some area are scoured all the way down to the Jan rain crust. There are large thick windslabs on all aspects. Very spooky conditions indeed!
