Avalanche: Seward

Location: Snug Harbor towards Lost Lake

Route & General Observations

We rode from Snug Harbor towards the Lost Lake weather station with hopes of doing a little troubleshooting. We saw a ton of natural avalanche activity once we got up above the V-max area, and with a lot of active wind loading on the terrain above us, we bailed on the weather station and stuck to sheltered low-angle terrain in the trees.

Avalanche Details

We saw multiple natural soft slab avalanches. Almost every aspect, with wider propagation than would be expected from a typical storm slab- likely failing on buried surface hoar.
