Saddle Chutes

Wind transport out of the south loading lee side of exposed ridge lines in the alpine. Once off the ridge is was very pleasant. HS in Saddle Chutes varied from 200-260cm with a couple shallower spots noted at 160cm.

BeaverMt/South Ridge

The basal facet layer is stronger than I expected, and I found it non-reactive in this pit. Quite a bit of nicely hardening February snow. Depth of slab making it hard to test and likely difficult for a person to trigger an avalanche.


Dug another quick hole down the ridge on the same aspect at 9700 and got ECTP 9 at 80cm (same layer as ECTP in this pit) Poor structure.
