TR: whistler inbounds Dec 27 2005

post #1 of 4

I dodged the bullet of rain I guess. It helps that I don't particularly care about what's happening at valley bottom for skiing and went up high and stayed there

At Headwall on some waist deep untracked wind-transported goodness I ski cut and triggered a size 1 avalanche. Headwall is at about 1900m and faces NW hence the windloading from the SW'ers. Crown was 15cms; bed surface was 1mm crystals which felt like the result from the previous day's storm cycle. The deposit didn't run far, exposed the rocks nicely and the bed surface actually made for good skiing

ssh - you can vaguely see the avvy debris to lookers left of my stitched picture off Headwall. It was too far away for the camera to get a shot.

wiz- Today was pretty off - the - scale waist deep wow Lighter then yesterday. Up to 100 cms of foot penetration on some slopes in Flute and Oboe.
