Tell us what you're seeing out there.
Our party unintentionally triggered a D2 persistent slab avalanche while skinning up a convex roll at 3575' on the approach to Cracked Ice from lower RFS ridge. The crown, located 8m uphill of us, was 90cm on the near end, and propagated approximately 60m across the slope. Our party was caught and displaced 50cm to 5m downhill; we remained standing, buried between calf- and waist-deep. We had been tracking the 4/20 layer of 1-1.5mm facets over the past 5 days. We triggered one shallow, D1 slab on this layer in a west-facing couloir in the Karat Chutes area on 4/23. We observed this layer in many areas around Thompson Pass above 3000' on W, NW, N, and NE aspects. Test results gathered near the path included: ECTP 24, PST35/100Endx2, CT1 SP, all on the 4/20 facet layer.
Toured up Moonlight today. At the base there was a lot of rotten snow (2110’) and conditions gradually improved till it firmed up around 3100’. We dug a pit and performed a compression test and found no instability. The ski down was consistent with good skiing was had.
