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 Beartrap Glades are on the east side of upper Beartrap Fork. These glades are wide-open and lower angle.

Asher Margolies
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Follow the instructions to Beartrap Fork. After passing the terrain-trap gully that is mentioned in those instructions, the main track stays slightly right of the drainage and then climbs to the ridge at the top of Beartrap Glades (near Silver). From the ridge you can ski back into Beartrap through any of several wide-open glades.

It is best to avoid the tight-and-steep (and avalanche prone) evergreen trees that are located between the Beartrap Glades and Beartrap Aspens.
