Date of Observation: 11/26/2022
Name: Turner Petersen

Zone: Northwest Mountains
Route Description: Toured with Owen Berv and Holden Bradford up Baxter basin on the Schuylkill side of the basin. Fully changed our tour plan to avoid crossing a wind loaded gully above exposure that we were concerned about after noticing more sensitive than expected small wind slabs when skinning over lower angle convexities lower in the drainage.

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: While skiing we all got slow moving facet sluffs to run a good 800’. Not concerning in the terrain we skied but could be in more extreme terrain.
Weather: Sunny. Slight Winds from the west.
Snowpack: Thin. 40 Cm’s?
