After a long winter of small storms, and showers we got over a foot of snow two days ago. In order to more accurately describe the avalanche conditions for the daily advisory it’s necessary to go up into avalanche terrain and see what slopes broke loose and which ones still have unstable snow in them. This is what we found in the floor of Tuckerman Ravine. This is what snow rangers really enjoy seeing, big crownlines – this one even stepped down to a lower weak interface. If you look close to the debris on the floor you can see at least two different events, based on the amount of wind erosion that has effected the earliest one.
