Got out for some backcountry skiing with solid partners in Ross and Gwen. It was a warm, beautiful day, and as I will try to always do, here’s the video to our avalanche pit test, which I screwed up when I cut it (but that does say something about the snow stability). On the video I mention we had a collapse at CT13, but I should have said CT14 (if you count and watch the video…). Temps were warm (~35-40deg) and we were about 2 miles northwest of the Lolo Pass SnoPark (at an area I think called “the Gash”).
Slope aspect was 300deg northwest.
Slope angle was 26deg.
Strong layers observed at 30cm, 90cm, and 120cm. Be careful out there!
