Avalanche risk for Nov 26, 2017: Low

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

The run from Black's Peak.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

This is one of my favorite lines up on B-Ridge, also known as Black's Peak apron. It's a big, beautiful open pitch of snow-flanked on both sides by two lines of evergreen trees converging to a point at the bottom. Note that an avalanche here would rake you through the trees. Ski beyond these trees for a slightly longer pitch. The flanking evergreens may provide some protection for this place from the wind.
