Both appeared to be cornice triggered, with the first one giving a large "boom" similar to a bomb. We were quite far away so difficult to judge depth.. 3 photos Monday February 6th Avalanche Canada, 1 day ago Forecast Regions: Lizard AST 1 Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 2 days ago Observation Snow depth 180cm on pass. Basel facets still present. Crust 80cm deep.

Skied some nicer heavy powder in open trees on the way out, and then ventured out of the sheltered trees into mammoths droppings next to the skin track on the way back. Nothing of note besides some decent skiing away from the crowds Mammoth Head Tour Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 3 days ago Observation Avalanche observation by Kyle Beaudry, seen near Lizard, reported on Sat 4th Feb, 2023 12:00PM 1 photos Saturday February 4th Avalanche Canada, 3 days ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West SW Mammoth's Head Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 3 days ago Observation We skied through Lost Boys and up behind Mammoth's Head. We didn't observe any recent avalanches and found a mix of wind affected snow in open areas and up to 25cm of powder in protected areas. We conducted an ECT with no fracture on a 35 degree slope at 1950m on the SE side of the shoulder. 2 photos Friday February 3rd Avalanche Canada, 4 days ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Friday February 3rd Avalanche Canada, 4 days ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Friday February 3rd Avalanche Canada, 4 days ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West AST 1 Field Day Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 5 days ago Observation We were on an AST 1 Field Day with StayWild Backcountry.

We primarily stuck to the tress for our session and found 10-15 cm of recent storm snow on old surfaces. 3 photos Thursday February 2nd Avalanche Canada, 5 days ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Wednesday February 1st Avalanche Canada, 6 days ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Race Car Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 1 week ago Observation We toured up to Race Car Rock and found surprisingly good skiing below treeline and sheltered treeline, with up to 10cm of new snow on roughly 15cm of low density faceted snow. The wind picked up around lunch time and was gusting strong at ridge-top. It was -13.0 at the cabin and -10.0 at the road. Tuesday January 31st Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Low Ridge 2000 Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 1 week ago Observation Skied lower Fish bowl from Ridge 2000. Evidence of recent size 1-2 avalanches in lower Fish, which appear to have been naturally triggered. Found about 15-20cm of powder on top of a crust. Minimal wind affected snow, and no wind slab. 1 photos Outer Siberia Ridge AST2 Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 1 week ago Observation We skinned up from Falling Star along the edge of the trees to the saddle. One other group above us. We then skinned NE up to top of ridge. Dug a large snow pit on NW side of ridge. Snowpack depth 195 cm. Snowpack essentially as expected from regional snowpack data. 2 photos Monday January 30th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West AST 2 Mammoth Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 1 week ago Observation We travelled from Lost Boys up to the shoulder of Mammoth and then skied back down and up to Lost Boys. It was a clear, cold day with light wind. Surprisingly pleasant given the temperature. Heavily wind affected snow surface at all elevations and surface faceting. 2 photos Sunday January 29th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Ridge 2000 Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 1 week ago Observation Pretty hollow up on/close to the ridge. Very mediocre skiing down into Liverworst, (we thought it would’ve been sheltered. It wasn’t) patches of thick wind slab mixed with powder made for a frustrating descent. The gorgeous blue skies and light wind made up for it. 2 photos Tunnel Circuit Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 1 week ago Observation A great day for a long tunnel ski, we did a loop through McDermott-mercury basins. We got a good look at most aspects and can confirm that everything has some form of wind effect on it at treeline and very little is unaffected in the alpine. 2 photos Unsurprisingly wind-slabby Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 1 week ago Observation Took a quick peek at lost boys pass. Unsurprisingly ++ windy and there was tons of wind slab, fairly thick in places.. Fairly cautious on the descent, some powder in sheltered trees but mostly remarkably wind affected snow. 3 photos Saturday January 28th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Friday January 27th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Thursday January 26th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Thursday January 26th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Lizard-Flathead, South Rockies, Flathead, Lizard, Bull, Elkford East, Elkford West Little Sand better than expected Lizard-Flathead: Lizard, 1 week ago Observation Skiing was excellent on fantastic snow quality at elevations below 1900m. 25cm of right side up on a supportive layer. Hand pit suggested the layer was thin and crumbly, snow above was adhering well. Wind slabs forming on upper layer above 1900 in open / alpine area. No signs of instability.
