Island Alpine Guides Washy Slackcountry


Another day in the Washy slackcountry with little change from yesterday (see our MIN report from then). Again a small skier triggered windslab on a small, steep feature (40+ degree) NE aspect. Excellent riding continues at and below treeline though there are certainly windslabs out there to watch for and coming winds will worsen this.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cold. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
