Wow... I may have to try Mt. Hood over Thanksgiving break as I will be down in the area.  Thanks for showing the great conditions!

The youtube video is "private" so I wasn't able to see it. Sad

Looks like a nice day...

Did you recognize any stability issues up to the point where you kicked off the Avy?

Nice change from September -- pic below.

Did that fracture run out?

I did some national forest wood cutting round Badger Lake on Tuesday, saw a few slides on open steeps.  It was definitely heavy and slick underneath.

yeah we knew it would slide---it was wider than i expected though, but the slope was only a hundred feet or so long

we actually went up to climb luetholds but pulled the plug before we even left the parking lot because we could tell it was bad avy conditions.

frontside hair because i wasnt wearing a hat and my long blonde hair was flowing in the wind....
