March 17th Crystal BC Union Creek
« on: 03/18/13, 10:11 AM »

Decided to go to Union Creek for a little St. Patrick fun.  Did a practice run just South of Bullion Basin and conditions were stable with ~10" over a firm stable layer.  Union Creek was a blast, and only minor movement.  Couple of skier went first and thanks for the skin track out.

Wind was howling at the top and the first 100 feet in the bowl heading to Bullion was rock solid.  A cornice broke, but only minor slide (see photo).

Luck of the Irish.
