We traveled to the northern Whitefish Range to see if wet snow instabilities would develop. And to get a firsthand look at the MLK freezing rain crust.
Because our ascent/ descent route didn't expose us to much, if any, avalanche terrain, we could focus on getting down in one piece.
3600- 7200 feet
Old crown observed from a distance. Date unknown; guessing on date due to snowfall at nearby SNOTEL.
