went up to Bell Lake today. The road was clear. I didn't dig a pit, but could definitely feel the rotten snow at the bottom. Didn't bother to skin pass the lake, looked kinda wind affected. played around in the tree and it was fun.

Headed up to Bell lake today for a few turns. Stability was questionable so we stuck to lower angle below. Pit at 9,200 ft on NE aspect revealed 2-3inch nonreactive slab and a larger 40cm slab that sparked some concern. ECT P13 with Q2ish sheers. Rutschblock 5, again Q1-2 sheers. Surface layer is pretty heavy currently. Dug on a slope of about 35 degrees with somewhat significant windloading. 205 CM OF SNOW WHERE WE DUG....on November 10...

Like someone said earlier there may be 6ft of snow in the T roots but there are plenty of 7 ft rocks.

...all within the boundary of Yellowstone National Park. Check out a map and get on Google Earth-- there are tons of incredible tours inside the Park.

nordicbordn- To get to Bell Lake you just head to Pony and jump on Petosi road, drive that till it ends. I couldn't help you with the no-tell though, not Bozeman enough to be in on that secret I guess.

Jackson's setting up pretty nicely. Low elevation pack is a little low still, but things are looking good up higher.

...especially in spots where you can drive to 9000'!

Haha, classic early season situation down there. Be interesting to see how it plays out. Thanks for the obs.

So, really? Nobody has anything to report for almost two weeks? Well, I toured up to Hyalite area yesterday to have a look at things. I was at just a bit above Hyalite Lake. There were about 8 inches of new snow from Tuesday. I think at higher elevation the avalanche conditions weren't as sketchy (compared to where people ice climb) and I didn't see any signs of natural slides from this past snowfall (I got an ECTN and blah blah blah). But things are still not complete filled in still, I was more worry about getting sharked than triggering slides. And actually I did hit a few rocks and one time it flipped me upside down in the snow (I have some board repairs to do). We can use more snow.

So what's the conditions like in other places? I think Bridger should be filling in nicely, especially it just got another 2 feet...

Divide peak in the distance. It's getting there but can use more snow.

Thanks for the obs. I haven't got shit to report. Had a heavy clinical rotation that has kept me out of the hills since early Dec... that should all change this next week though.
