Firm - Nice track set, prefer to access banana bowl by this flat top route instead of lower fern lake. History

Getting forecast...

Avalanche risk for Feb 15, 2019: Considerable

Dangerous avalanche conditions. Careful snowpack evaluation, cautious route-finding and conservative decision-making essential. Natural avalanches possible; human-triggered avalanches likely.

Description

To reach Flattop's East face there are two options, Flattop Mt. approach or Flattop East face approach via the Fern Lake trail. Climb as high as you like; the views only get better. The skiing is fun, open and can be great after a fresh snow. This area is generally safe due to its east facing aspect and lower angle slope. Enjoy.

Wind blown and firm. A few decent turns on far skiers right in the trees.
