Lynx - Deep slab avalanche activity

Map for Mountain Information Network report: Lynx - Deep slab avalanche activity


The day was:
  • Sunny
  • Warm
Avalanche conditions
  • Slab avalanches today or yesterday.


Two natural large avalanches were reported in this area during the warming period over the weekend. These avalanches had deep crowns that could have involved the facets at the base of the snowpack that we have not seen avalanches on in this area for some time. Areas, where this problem may be a concern, are shallow snowpack areas where the bottom snowpack is generally weak with variable depths of consolidated snow above that can be triggered by human activity. This area does not see a lot of recreational traffic and is a good reminder that sharing is caring.
