killclimbz Hey, Moderate conditions are where most of your avalanche fatalities happen. Mostly because those are the conditions where people are willing to push it.

Still, I would love that window. It's more like one to two weeks out here for that to happen...

killclimbz Surprisingly it hasn't been as nasty as you'd think with all this snow. Well at least below tree line. Regardless, we have all the ingredients right now for some very deadly slides. There is a slab, several in fact, sitting on top of some very unsupportable weak layers. All you need is a slope steep enough to slide and you. I have found myself having to be very picky in areas that I normally wouldn't worry about this sort of thing. That said, if you use your head, there is some really fun stuff that can be done right now.

Be safe out there.
Don't worry we probably will get like 3 inches if we're lucky
