Dudley Creek Avalanche

From Obs: "On Saturday we toured up Dudley Creek. At around 1pm we ski cut an isolated, wind loaded pocket on a SE aspect at approximately 9200ft elevation and released a wind slab (see photo). The slab was about 20 feet wide, about 1 foot at it's deepest, and ran for about 200 feet. Staying wary of wind loading, we dug a pit on a NE aspect, in a spot without evidence of significant wind loading, and received an ECTNX. Although we did not identify any failure on buried weak layers in this location, it will remain something to watch for with more snow and warmer temps on the way." E Schreier
