Observation: Turnagain

Location: -1 bowl off seattle ridge

Route & General Observations

Toured the ridgeline in the AM and mainbowl in the afternoon. The winds seemed to have blown ridgeline snow down to the tundra with a small bit of fresh deposited on top. No red flag instabilities noted. Windslab on the ridgeline between bowls. There were 2 glide-cracks in -1 bowl, one in the picture as marked on the map which I believe there was one there last season too. A second was directly across -1 bowl at a similar elevation.
