Alpine Scramble - Arrowhead Mountain

Intended destination Evergreen Mountain Lookout rerouted to Arrowhead due to avalanche conditions.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles

Morning of avalanche report increased to Considerable Avy risk below tree line, so that was our cue to head to gentler slopes. As it turned out that also got us into better weather which was unexpectedly pleasant on the east side of the crest.

Snow is disappearing fast and made close to the ridge before putting on snowshoes.

Day was uneventful other than a broken snowshoe which made for a lopsided ascent and descent. (now adding a MSR Snowshoe pivot pin to my kit) Made due with what we had and still a successful day.
