Traveled up to Eightmile Lake environs. The NE couloir of Axis peak had a sizable crown midway up the face that was visible from down valley. We counted three separate crown lines on Axis that had debris on Lake Run. One in the NE couloir, one below the cliff band lookers right and a small one near the col. We didn’t get close enough to investigate further. Based on lack of new snow over the debris, we’re guessing they ran sometime Thursday. Interestingly enough, the activity on Lake Run was the only activity we saw including on similar north faces. We traveled to 6300’ on a north aspect noting wind affect as we ascended. At the lake, there was around 6” of snow over the Christmas crust but nearly 1.5-2’ over the crust at 6300’. The crust deteriorated as we got higher. We noted the presence of a wind slab, but multiple hasty pits on the way up indicated that it was shallow, 6” or so, and did not have much energy. Hand shears gave us non planar brakes and resistant planar shears at best. The sun was out and the wind was light. The skiing was excellent on wind buffed powder.
