Avalanche risk for Apr 18, 2019: Low

Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

Another tree variation on Jackal's excellent south slopes.

Description

One of the many possible quality ski lines on the south face right below the Jackal Hut. For this one, head east a couple hundred yards, then take the fall line straight down as far as you want. You should be able to connect many wide-open patches of easy skiing with few trees. As you get lower, you get stuck more and more in a drainage. Stop any time and climb back out.
