Location Name or Route
Heavens Halfpipe
Avalanche Problem #1
Wet Snow
Walked up Heaven'a Halfpipe today, witnessed several sluffs that generally all started from small point releases and carried over the large cliff bands of the Halfpipe, several of which were quite large and could have easily carried an unsuspecting rider in the wrong place. First two are video stills of a large sluff I watched come down from the top of Bighorn. Last photo was earlier in the day, when I viewed that side of the Halfpipe again later in the day, the debris was much larger and more widespread. Solars took a lot of damage today.
