Avalanches: We decided to avoid Death Pass, due to recent snow fall and multiple avalanche sightings returning from Friend’s Hut. Cornice Drop and Slab Avalanches around entire curve, as well as below the road. We caused cracking and set off a smaller slab avalanche below the road from 50-100′ away.
Weather: mid 20F, relatively calm.
