Snowshowed from Alpine Meadows up 19 Mile Creek Trail yesterday, Sunday, then along Skywalk South. Booted from valley to 1650m on supportive crust with about 12-14cm along the way. At treeline, 1650, we put on snowshoes as the new snow, now about 20cm was being transported into slabs up to 50cm thick. Winds increased to 1900m where we turned around in increasing avy conditions. Some small avies observed on steep northerly convexities. Temps -4C at 1300hrs. Winds 25-40 from SE...
Fun is where you make it...
