Avalanche risk for Feb 21, 2019: Considerable

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

Lee-facing slope that holds snow well, even after a dry spell.

Need to Know

When we approached the yurt for the first time, the slope just south of this line had broken apart but not slid. Clearly this area gets very wind loaded, but the slope should be too shallow to slide.

Description

From the yurt, descend to the main approach track and then put skins on. I'd ascend the main approach trail, then head up to the ridgeline to approach the top of this line.

This is an easily lap-able area with few trees. Makes for a great day near the yurt.
