The 'dacks have very real avalanche paths. Most of the runs there are created by mud/rock avalanches that take out the trees. Leaving little to anchor down the snow should it decide to slide. I am not overly familiar with the 'dacks but from everything I've seen it tells me it has the potential to slide. Check out Drew Haus' book on skiing the 'dacks. I'm sure he'll have his recommendations as to what to carry.
