Just curious, how does that area compare to tunnel creek in terms of slope and slide danger? I realize it is somewhat near it, but that doesn't mean it's comparable risk. I understand Tunnel Creek is fairly steep (I saw 42 degrees I think) and seems to be set up ideally for an avalanche path. From what I've seen of Hollywood Bowl vids, it doesn't look nearly as bad.

I'm not suggesting it isn't a risk, but is it accurate to say that Tunnel Creek is a much bigger risk on any given day?
