That 1st pic says it all!!! Incredible!
that are steep enough to slide so consider the avalanche conditions,
Something to definitely keep in mind. Especially in terrain like that. I don't know if its the same down there as MT but there's some nasty faceted snow with all this new on top of it....bad!! combination.
I saw the longest crown on the NE side of Bald Mtn in the Biggies 2 weeks ago I've ever seen (its the side of the mtn we never kite but...). It didn't slide a long ways or take out trees below but it was maybe 800-1000 yards long & 2-3 ft deep along the crown.
Heads up if there's any chance where you're kiting or traveling through. Have partners and at minimum pack a shovel.
Do we need beacons with a kite attached?
