A few Slate River Obs.

10webCBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 03/18/2023
Name: Evan Ross

Zone: Northwest Mountains
Route Description: Slate River

Observed avalanche activity: Yes

Snowpack: Loose-dry and Loose wet avalanches looked like the primary avalanche problems NTL and BTL. Both natural and skier-triggered. Most of the wet avalanche activity appeared to have occurred yesterday or previously. I didn’t travel on southerly-facing slopes today and don’t know how wet they got, but temperatures did feel cooler than yesterday. The only recent slab avalanche I saw was in the Great Wide Open of Skooks. It looked like it failed after yesterday morning’s 1″ of fairy dust.
