Comments

Guesswork on avalanche characteristics as only noted on drive down BCC.  See location below.  To me, I'm more interested in the outliers - what's the lowest extent of persistent slab avalanche danger? - than the more expected activity on Reynolds Peak and other "classic" terrain of mid and upper elevation shady terrain.
