Avalanche risk for Nov 18, 2018: Low

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

A wide, east-facing bowl with both fun and risky lines.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Avalanche or "Avy" Bowl is a fun, wide-open stretch below (south of) KB Ridge before arriving at The Claw. Beware of rolling convexities at the top of the bowl and a notorious slide path thermal zone to the far skier's left toward KB Ridge called "Wolf Trap".
