Joes Garage Bowl

Andrew Stokes

Skied the SE aspect of Joes Garage Bowl again today. Excellent snow on the pitch but other aspects fairly wind affected from northeasterly winds. One observation of note was fresh debris from a cornice triggered avalanche on a NE slope that was noticed on the way in (see second photo).

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

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

Weather

Sunny day but stayed cold enough to keep slopes cold. Dry powder found on SE slopes.

Avalanche

Observed avalanche debris that was the result of cornice failure above NE slope on the way into Joes Garage. Debris was not there the previous day.
