Big Creek to Fernow
March 14, 2019, 10:30 a.m. PST
Weather: Sunny 25F
Snowpack: Weak layer about 18" down. Failed consistently about CTS 23-25 at the 18" layer. Forecast was for moderate at all elevations, we felt that was about right but we're wary of the pwl.
Area Description: North aspect Fernow
Avalanches: Remote triggered a 150' wide about 3' crown from above and couple hundred feet away on a convex rollover. A large whoomp triggered it. Ran with energy. We had a few more whoomp events in more conservative locations the following days but no avalanches. Solar aspects shedding like crazy as expected throughout warming cycle.
