Backcountry Ski/Snowboard - Roaring Ridge (Snoqualmie)

Toured at Crystal instead due to low snowpack at Snoqualmie

  • Road suitable for all vehicles

Toured up to Bear Gap and environs.   Found Avy debris on steeper slopes from cornice  collapses.   Some debris fields quite large.   Snow in trees was awful tree bombed crust with a bit of dust.   In open areas there was a 3-4 inches of high density new snow on semi frozen granular.   Skied with a delicate touch it was OK, but easy to sink into the granular and experience "trap crust" lock and load.  Speed helpful in avoiding sinking.

Arrived 8:04 and parked at top of C lot as A lot had just filled.

Leaving at 3:30 B lot completely full and a lot of cars in D lot.
