Lower Black Mountain

Calen Beaune

Went halfway up Black Mountain. Not much wind loading observed but stayed in the dense trees. Saw some snow dropped from the trees but didn’t witness any tree bombs. No signs of avalanche releases or pinwheels on the way up. About 4” of heavy new snow on top of a hard crust. Didn’t hear any cracks or whumpfs.

Snow conditions were: Heavy. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Convex slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was good.
