Remote triggered a wind slab on the east face of Tye Peak near treeline. Crown was about 20-25ft across and 6-18 inches deep.
Signs of Unstable Snow
Did you see shooting cracks?
Did you experience collapsing or whumpfing?
Tour’d up to skyline lake, down into the basin and up Tye Peak until we remote triggered a wind slab. Bailed the same way we came in. Fog/cloud cover all day, no substantial precipitation, no wind. Skiing conditions mostly consisted of 2-8 inches of heavy snow on top of the ice crust.
Observed Avalanche Problem #1:
Isolated wind slab near treeline on the east face of Tye Peak. Quite touchy.
