We rode into Doris Creek and the Jenny lake area today. Riding conditions were outstanding, with minimal wind affect until approximately 6000-6500 ft. Above that the wind had been ripping quite well and made for a dramatic looking landscape.
Doris Cr road to the end of the fireline and then we skinned to the ridgetop.
We saw evidence of recent avalanches within the storm snow. These occured up to 6000 ft and were on all aspects. Above that we saw wind slabs that had released in the steeper terrain. They varied in depth from 10-20 inches deep and most running 500-800 vertical feet.
