Drive through Summit Lake to take a look at what the NW winds have done in this area. Several wind slab avalanches, most of which are from earlier in the week (Monday 4/5). One on the north end of Summit Peak, pictured below, is new today April 9th. Winds have scoured and impacted this region more than Turnagain Pass.
