Location Name or Route:
Bear Trap Fork
Very small dry loose natural in the gully of Beartrap Fork.
Pit depth: 64cm Compression test produced a failure at 50cm at the new/old snow interface. The next failure was produced at around CT7 and broke above the next crust. This last storm was not enough of a load to produce big avalanches that our ticking time bomb facets are waiting for. Windloading or a storm with more water might produce these persistent slab avalanches. For now, I'll be watching my sluff and staying out of north facing windloaded terrain. Seems like a good window to get some powder skiing in.
