2/21 snowslide rutschblock

Postby TKdub » February 24th, 2017, 1:14 pm

We made a rutschblock in the upper part of snowslide on 2/21. About 16" (ish) of new snow, windblown, pretty firm. We got a failure at the interface between the new windslab and the older crust, at a rutschblock 6 (failed on third jump).

Sorry for the lack of scientific rigor, but I thought I would post.
