Shooting cracks on the West Side

Skiers on the west side of the Bridgers found poor structure and signs of instability on Sunday. From the email: "We found a soft 4 finger layer about a foot thick over 6 to 12 inches of large grained facets that wouldn’t let us isolate a column. As we skinned up, we experienced whoomphing and cracking in the snow." Photo: P. Hinz
