Two awesome days at Stevens, what a way to end the "regular" season. Saturday felt like mid February.
Walove, yes it was EXTREMELY reactive on Saturday. I set off a huge slough that took my buddy for a ride first run down on the backside, skiers left of SC. Then came the reports of the two avys near Snoqualmie. NWAC also referenced a slide just outside the Stevens boundaries that almost completely buried a snowboarder and his buddy. One was able to self extricate and save his buddy (sounds like this could have ended a lot worse than it did). We stayed pretty low angle OB Saturday and didn't pop anything more than a few good sized sloughs.
Unfortunately it sounds like two lives were lost near Snoqualmie. I'll wait to discuss that until the NWAC reports come out, too many missing details at this point.
I saw on the news one lady died while walking her dog. Her dog was found the next day. As of last night the 61 yr old expert hiker was still missing about 48 or more.
