Convict Area- near Morrison Col
Sunday, January 13, 2019 - 12:45pm
Toured toward Morrison Col from the southeast. Upon reaching a small ridge on the south side of the East Bowl across from Morrison Col it was apparent the slope entering the bowl was windloaded and a very small cornice was forming. The wind slab was very sensitive and easily triggered from the ridge. Before and after pictures are attached. The upper portions ran only 10-15' into the gentle upper bowl, however the lower portion of the slab ran approx 100' on slightly steeper terrain. One at a time, we crossed the bed surface and traversed to the col. Significant wind loading was apparent on the north side of the col and we opted to ski the East Bowl down.
