Clara Lake this was a quick trip, visibility was poor, so I was unable to evaluate surrounding terrain.

Weather: Snowing temps ~28
Snowpack: Dug a quick pit, on a modest slope, and while digging I created a fracture that ran along the slope break over. Two facet layers one at 30cm and 50 cm ECT failed on 30cm layer, on column isolation. I continued and the 50cm failed on 15. This was duplicated twice.
