Salt Lake » Big Cottonwood Canyon » Cardiff Fork » Cardiac Bowl
Location Name or Route
Skinned up cardiac bowl. Pole probes showed pretty varied snowpack, but noted no signs of instability until close to the rocks near the top of the bowl. Noted two loud collapses, with shooting cracks. Hasty pits near the collapses showed what appeared to be wind transported snow on top of facets. Quite a bit of precip today, most of which was graupel which made for some interesting disappearing skin tracks as it rolled down the slope.
