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

An awesome open face, perfect for lapping.

Description

Starting just at treeline, this line bombs down an open and mostly low-angle area. When we were there (1/24/17), this area was mostly unaffected by the wind, and seemed to hold fresh powder better than others nearby.

Instead of heading all the way down into the trees, I'd recommend lapping this run until you completely track it out.
