Zone or Region:
NE facing 30-35 degree slope with some steeper features above SW of Twin Lakes
Mostly 30-40 degrees. We skied NE face of Jobs the day before and saw very small isolated wind slabs that didn’t propagate. Today we skied soft snow on the windward aspects of the west ridge leading up to Matterhorn Peak. The gully we skied was great, but had more consistent loading. Most triggered snow wasn’t deep and more like slough. Two wind slabs broke and traveled a little ways down.
We appreciate all you do!
Did you trigger any avalanches? Yes
Was it intentional? No
Size 1: Relatively harmless to people
Don’t have a shot of the (slightly) bigger one that my friend skied out of. Most were just small localized wind slabs with variable surrounds and didn’t propagate. One did and ran out maybe 100 ft, nothing deep.
Did you see shooting cracks? Yes, Isolated
Did you experience collapsing or whumpfing? No
