Location Name or Route
PC Ridgeline, No Name Bowl, South Monitor Bowl
Went to the N facing terrain of No Name Bowl and South Monitor today. The main activity in No Name was long running skier initiated sluffs that would run quite a distance but not at a fast pace. The speed of the sluffs increased and gouged down when the surface snow got damp later in the day. There was also roller balling and wet activity on the more E, SE facing, portion of the bowl. South Monitor N facing stayed dry longer than No Name due to a higher elevation and more cloud cover. I would expect high N to still be dry tomorrow but most other aspects should have a crust.
Photos: long running sluffs in No Name, rimed tree on the ridgeline, and since this is my last ob for the regular season a photo of a guy who’s been backcountry skiing in the Wasatch longer than most of us have been alive and continues to do it every day, Brad Makoff, with time comes wisdom. It’s been an awesome winter, but avalanche seasons not over yet as I learned yesterday.
