Recreational Observation

Toured Golden Gate trail, dropped down to Paradise River, up to Mazama ridge and skied the east aspect of the bowl.

March 14, 2019, 11:30 a.m. PST

Weather: Low 30s, partly cloudy, partly cloudy in morning, flat light around noon and brightened up in the afternoon

Snowpack: dry in the morning, got heavier throughout day. Felt/saw some wind affected areas.

Area Description: Bowl east of Mazama Ridge

Avalanches: Noticed a crown on the far east side of the bowl, SSE aspect. Saw single point, probably from tree/cornice, that released a slab. The light was terrible so I outlined the crown and flanks in red and the debris field in blue. Probably from previous day.
