Location Name or Route
I added a few photos of the wind loading today in White Pine. We traveled up to White Pine Lake and the photos include Lake Peak, Red Baldy, Birthday Chutes and one small, natural, wind slab we came upon around 9,400' on a steep moraine rollover. We noticed several older natural avalanches that occurred during the storm or towards the end of the storm with wind loading. These include east facing Rainbow Ridge, North facing Lake Peak, North face of Red Baldy and the NW face of Red Baldy. Many of them were covered by subsequent new snow and appeared to be about 3' deep and various widths. The one on NW facing Red Baldy appeared to be shallower and fresher so we suspected that it ran during the wind at the end of the storm.
