Red Cone Bowl - N. Slope
Monday, March 30, 2020 - 1:00pm
Arrived to redcone bowl, and one small avalanche had been recently triggered on the north slope from the ridgeline. Continued stomping along the ridgeline and triggered 3 more avalanches, the last one the largest (see video, crown photo and density profile photo). Density of snow in crown picture: 15cm 1finger ontop of 15cm fist failing on 1finger old snow surface.
Also ski cut accros the top of a sheltered north facing steep chute on the approach, which resulted in quite a bit of loose dry sloughing from wind deposited snow (see photo).
Moderate SW winds at ridgetop, blowing some snow across the surface. Calm below the ridgeline. Partly cloudy skies.
10,400', 1pm, -1°C at ridgetop.
