Lake George Headwall
Sunday, March 3, 2019 - 11:15am
There were a lot of very small windslab crowns visible around the cirque of the Lake George Headwall. I tried to pull the most notable ones to the fore by adding arrows to the photo. The Rightmost arrow on the photo has a close-up photo of the crown from a safe location on the ridge. All these slides ran mid-storm or overnight into this morning. Snowpack tests nearby indicated fracture initiation, but not propagation. See obs photo.
The weather was cooler than expected given the surface snow conditions we found. Wind was actively transporting snow at ridgetop and mid slope as we toured today.
