    No other details that I have heard But I did hear it was On Haddo. Fuck.
    Was up on the north east face 6weeks ago and we turned around due to suspect hard slab on hollow.....Weird winds in there....

    Damn! Thats rough. Read that holding my breath after reading canmore. Ive never seen turns there but it looks like itd be nice to bag haddo and sheol before a nice ski down the n slope or the little chute that aims at surprise.
    Vibes to those involved.

    Yea I skied that line last year from just below where the slide started. Its quite fun and fairly mellow compared to how it looks,(and by mellow I just mean fairly low slope angle and reasonable fall line still a big fucking slope) once you head out onto that steep upper section it gets full on straight away. I really didn't have much snow on it all year either winds must have fucked it. Guessing it was mostly just the last couple storms that made it look reasonable to that group. Heads up and safe spring sending everyone don't need to lose anyone else.

    Word! Sounds like it has some time before full on spring stability along the divide. It always looks so caked in there with a couple big cornices along the haddo/sheol col hanging over it, and looking straight at it seems probably steeper than it is. The cornices were always my concern. I didnt want to climb under them .I thought it be best to go up the south south east/paradise valley side w crampons and then time that hanging snowfield on haddo before sheol summit and sliding in between the cornices on the col to that north side.Still a lot of snow even if it wasnt typical depths. Sizeable slope/basin

    Yea its definitely still winter. Lots of big stuff going down. E face of Vic skied today, new line on E face mt bell yesterday. I've been enjoying the sunshine and keeping er mellow myself. Been a good year for the most part but I imagine some areas are awfully thin from the big winds and might catch people with some wet spring coverage making um look phat. Yea going up the P-Valley side would definitely reduce your exposure time, we just did an alpine start and mashed up the line for about 9am top out and then skied down and out surprise pass. Really fun day with lots of skiing, certainly cornice exposure but not really anymore then The S slope from Paradise. When I skied that a few years ago we basically used the bed surface from an old cornice failure to gain the ridge and there were still some healthy ones hanging around.

    Any pics of the east face of mt bell? Skied the big chute at the back of taylor lake in the mid 90's. I think thats mt bell? Other side is boom lake and the chute is north i think. Been a while. Memory is a bit hazy. Was on silverettas and a 203 olin extreme

    A guy went for a ride on the slopes around Lake Agnes and stopped with his head poking out of the debris (his buddy was kind enough to take a pic, floating around facebook). Looked like he was on a solid snowboard and based on his comments sounds pretty green to backcountry. Close call for sure.

    The Lake was fantastic this morning. 8cm skied more like 30 on WH1/2. It snowed most of the time we were there and continued even heavier after we left.
    The drive home was a little sporty though. Iím glad I didnít switch the tires on my truck yesterday when I did my wifeís.

    Still Winter in K-country! All day storming and pow turns a-plenty. Stability was holding nice but winds were picking up. Good start to the alpine season after a 6 week hiatus to pursue other activities...Go get some!
