About as touchy as it gets. Natural avalanches on almost every steep slope.
Beautiful bluebird day.
See avalanche database for extensive list. In addition to those slides, we remotely triggered a small but notable slide along the creek that drains Baker Lake. As we walked along flat terrain above the creek we felt the slope collapse. We peered over the edge we could see that we had triggered a pocket about 100' wide that failed on the early season facets. As we continued along, we could see that another similar pocket had failed sympathetically about 300-400 get further upstream.
20-25cm HST. 12/11 facets are buried 45-50cm deep here. This interface produced loud, long traveling, rumbling collapses. These were more common on shaded slopes but were occuring on solars too.
Layer Depth/Date: Down 45-50cm
Weak Layer(s): Dec 11, 2020 (FCsf)
Comments: A bit worse on shaded aspects but still concerning on dollars.
We avoided all avalanche terrain with the exception of a very small slope. On this slope, we were only comfortable traveling on it because we had remotely triggered a slide on it first and were able to walk on the bed surface.
