Avalanche risk for Apr 23, 2019: Low

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

An expansive open bowl with numerous options for a fun easy descent.

Gunks Jesse
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

This expansive north-facing bowl has numerous moderate options at and below tree line. Softer snow usually awaits in the trees.

Follow the Jones Pass South Ascent up Jones Pass Road to the top of the bowl. It is a straightforward ascent, especially after the snowmobiles and the snow cats have established the path.

The descent is almost as straightforward as the ascent. The bowl is wide open and is mostly lower-angle, moderate runs. Choose your line and start the descent. Be sure to meet up with your partner prior to entering the woods. Pretty much any line you take will funnel you back to the skin track or snow cat track and out to the parking area, so it is really easy to get in and out of here.
