Small Wind Slab

CBACCBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 02/06/2022
Name: Evan Ross

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Route Description: Below Mt Axtell

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: Triggered 1 small wind slab while traversing into the slope. East 10,960. The crown ranged from 2 feet down to 2 inches. D1 in size and harmless. This slope has a good fetch and in the crown there were three hard wind slabs, all stacked on top of each other. Each thin hard slab sandwiched a layer of weak faceted snow. The crown did propagate fairly wide into some lower angled terrain that didn’t release. I later put one track on a similar slope in the same area without a result.
