Avalanche risk for May 19, 2019: Considerable

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

A fantastic, miles-long line with Hallett Peak and Flattop Mountain towering above.

Description

One of the highlights of skiing any of the steep lines in upper Tyndall Gorge is this moderate line at the bottom. At over a mile long (and up to nearly 2.5 miles, if you're able to ski all the way to Bear Lake Parking Area), Tyndall Gorge often holds deep snow late into the season.
