Observation Date: 03/14/2021

Skied Big Joe on Fri, found very wind scoured slopes with no snow on N Face. SE Bowl had moderate overhanging cornice on entry below summit, hardening corn skiing on late afternoon descent.

Lapped Little Joe E bowl on Sat, skied well mid-day. Dug at 7340′ on a steeper + powdery NNE aspect below bowls: 205cm depth, ECTX, PST 60/100 ARR on facets above Jan. 13 rain crust.

Skied Pinball at ~12:00pm on Sun. Observed small and numerous small natural wet slides. Old avy debris fills the lower half and requires a mindful descent to not blow a knee. Crossed creek and skied Lappi Point, mostly ENE, with great snow.


Moderate on ridgetops out of NE on Fri, breathless on Sat + Sun.

New Snow: No New Snow

Avalanche Activity:
Only observed the crown of one recent slab avalanche in Bass drainage, W of Lappi point at ridgeline, looked to be cause by collapsed cornice. Small-medium sized wet naturals on numerous primarily S facing slopes throughout the weekend.
