Comments
I came across this avalanche while skinning back up towards the LCC ridge line. It was a natural avalanche that would of had some serious consequences as you would of been dragged through some gnarly trees and rocks. The snowpit showed fist snow moving down to a four finger slab to fist faceted snow that was roughly 8" deep. No crust was found here. Mature faceted grains.
