Dec 22, HWY 20, Cutthroat creek
« on: 12/23/14, 07:46 AM »

This should get onto NWAC from another in party.  On ridge to North of Cutthroat Creek Dec 22.  Two separate remote (by 30 to 50 feet) triggered slides, both over 100' wide.  We were traversing along top of ridge to get to gentler slopes.  A pit had already shown very easy shear at 65cm on the surface of last week's crust.  Reactive snowpack in this area of our travels but did not hear settlement on the other low angle slopes we ventured onto.  SW aspect, 6800', crowns from 1.5' to 3', ran 400' of vert into area of small trees.  Skiing very good even on low angles, ski penetration <1' as the latest snowfall has thickened a bit.  (now I'll see if the photos will load)
