Our approach to Mt. Teneriffe was via the old Teneriffe trail. We put on snowshoes at around 3,600 feet. Snow depth was measured at 130 cm at treeline. Upon clearing the treeline we headed directly for the first rock band that is the summit of Teneriffe. As we approached the band I observed the snow moving down the slope. At this point we noticed a crack appear above us. Luckily the snow stopped after around a foot of movement. It is speculation at this time if this would have been just a D1 or if it had run further turned into a D2. After this we carefully backed down into the trees and reassessed the situation. We decided to attempt an approach further climbers left up around the rock band in what appeared to be less wind loaded area. We did a quick slope stability test and looked for evidence of a slab and found what appeared to be just dry unconsolidated snow. As we approached the rock band a crack shot across the snow below us. At this point we called it for the day.
