Tonight American Avalanche Institute will present the state of the snowpack at Headwall Sports. Enjoy complimentary tacos and beer.
Posted @withrepost • @avyinstitute What do you look for when you're in a snow pit? Thin grey lines in the snowpack are guilty until proven innocent. They are often a layer of facets or surface hoar. Common buried weak layers. ⠀
