Left from June Mtn Resort. Toured below hemlock ridge, up through Ghost Trees. Descended through Ghost Trees back towards Yost Lake. Returned via Yost Creek Trailhead.
Did you trigger any avalanches?
Was it intentional?
Size 1: Relatively harmless to people
Found a reactive wind slab at the entrance of a drainage above Yost Lake.. While traversing/ ski cutting the top of the drainage prior to descent a wind slab (approx 10x5’ ) broke under the ski cut and propagated. Wind slab debris involved ran along the surface of the terrain. No one was involved or injured. Continuing on the traverse/ cut there was no reactivity on the SE aspect of the same drainage.
Signs of Unstable Snow
Observed Avalanche Problem #1:
Isolated wind slabs found throughout the region. Inconsistent in location/ reactivity. Found primarily At or above tree line . Approx 5-7cm thick ( see photo)
