Wow, I really need to take an avalanche course..

I had no idea, for example, that Iago would be considered avalanche territory (I went with Karvitk in Dec).

Makes one think!

Glad you both are ok.
We did this trip on a cold and cloudy day... definitely more stable than where we have spring like conditions ..such as on this event.

Really got to watch out for the pinwheels... seen them before, so definitely an indicator. Saw these on Mt. Baker/Table Mountain last year.. on warm south exposure where snowslides were witnessed occurring around 11 am to 1:30 pm. Did not fully appreciate the risk of this trip...
