Comments
Moderate SSW winds had cross loaded the fall line ridge below Little Superior. Intentionally triggered a stiff wind slab with a ski cut that pulled out a 1"-8" deep x 50' wide and ran approximately 350'. Upper elevation snow was obviously wind effected. Best skiing was on mid-lower elevation sheltered slopes protected from the winds.
