December 26, 2015 Herman Saddle
« on: 12/26/15, 11:07 PM »

Mt. Herman and Herman Saddle area was well consolidated.  Visibility was flat, cloudy all day, making high speeds tough.  We witnessed no new releases today, nothing was moving.  Evidence of large cornices, be weary of some.  Skied Herman into the basin and toured back up to the saddle where we found the best turns of the day.  Just a few tracks in that area, we didn't witness more than maybe 10 folks in that region all day.

We didn't witness anything of concern other than large cornice and the few slide paths on steep aspects that looked to have released yesterday.  Best visibility for us happened slightly after 1pm made for great turns down from herman saddle.
