Toured on Knob Mountain today, at elevations ranging from 7,000 to 10,150 feet. Snowpack is unstable and very sensitive on north aspects. Our snowpit revealed the problematic layer that has caused the many avalanches we saw today, which is the bottom layer of weak faceted snow from the October storms. It was between 10 and 15 cm deep in the areas we traveled today. While skinning along a ridgeline we remotely triggered an avalanche with a 3 foot high crown at least 100 feet away from us.
