Notes

From an email, "My partner and I skied up bacon rind with plans on skiing the <30 degree run on the east face of Ernest miller ridge. On our way out there we had a large collapse, and saw shooting cracks.  We dug a pit at 9,150 ft on a E facing slope and got a ECT P16Q1 about 90 cm down.  Before this off in the distance (photo) we saw a massive avalanche in a 35 degree wind loaded NE slope at 9,600. It appeared to be about 1 - 1.5 m deep and 100 ft across."
