east Mt Republic

Snowpit location is partially sheltered by whitebark pine from both the sun and the wind. 200' vertical higher, and the wind effect/ avalanche hazard was more substantial. Observed one recent slab avalanche on an adjacent NW facing slope (a windslab about 8" deep and 20' wide).

east 9595

Winds this morning were gusting into the 50mph range, from the SW (at the Lulu Pass wx station), and affected many exposed slopes, even in the lower elevations.
