South Rockies

ok, ok, it wasn’t thaaaaat deep, but we were waaaay South …… Mindful of the SPAW (Special Avalanche Warning) that’s in place until the 4th; the recent snow loading; wind loading; and natural (+human triggered) avalanches that we’ve been seeing; we headed out into some rolling clearcuts and low low angle slopes to evaluate conditions. While we did see significant wind affect, wind loading of lee slopes, and cornice building, we saw no Natural Avalanches, nor did we have results in a test pit we dug at Treeline. In sheltered areas away from previous sun affect, we were able to ski and sled in good boot-top powder.
