Observation: Turnagain

Location: Todd's Run, Tin Can

Route & General Observations

There were two tracks on the far right side of Todd’s upon our arrival. We
noticed a hard icy patch of snow at the top of the far left side of Todd’s, but
the snow was much softer around this area. The first skier triggered a
fracture that was from 6″ to 3′ deep. It was a softer, wind loaded slab that
ran on a very hard icy surface, similar to the hard icy spot we had initially
noticed. While the initial fracture was only about 20 feet wide, it widened
significantly as it ran taking with it the entire left side of Todd’s and about
half of lower center Todd’s.
