As nov 5th, snowpack at the pass is shallow but a good base in the alpine (about 150cm at 2100m) for this time of the year. Toured up to the tree triangle on a cold sunny day can you see the lodge down there ?

Warm weather and rain up 1700 m first day and previous day was warmer. So mostly all avalanche path below treeline had slid from size 2 to 3.5 (Frequent flyer). A lot of glide cracks on the way up too Next days, freezing line lowered and got up to 45 cm new snow in alpine. Best aspects were north facing with dry powder (Bruins Pass, Youngs Peak) over 2000 m. Not so bad at all in the alpine. Worst compression test results were hard with planar results. Still plenty of snow in valley bottoms just need to manage your travel to the alpine safely. November 11, 2012 at 11:39 pm #607954 karkis 270 Posts decent early season conditions up Connaught yesterday… above treeline theres *generally* a base of 100 – 140 cms under a solid rain crust, and 20 – 40 fresh on top of that, mostly blower with some wind affected the pow seems to be sticking to the crust *reasonably well* for the most part with some localised cracking / shearing good shreddin down to about 2000m reasonable down to about 1800m, some open water in creek beds kind of desperate below that, the alder still owns the slide paths, an important factor for route selection the rain crust is good for keeping the ptex off the rocks but its definitely a layer to keep in mind until things bridge it well never summer snowboards phantom splitboard bindings dynafit touring atomic boots Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 22 total) 1 2 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
