Hiked up following Little Sheep Creek until I reached ~1,300 feet. I transitioned to splitboarding, continuing to follow the creek until I reached 1,700 feet. Then I crossed the creek and ascended towards “Marmot Meadows” until I reached ~2,500 feet. My decent route followed the summer trail to West Peak until I reached the road.  [ Read More ]

Both entrances to Perseverance Trail look to have been hit by avalanche and landslide. Very large (guessing Relative scale 4 Destructive scale 3) avalanche came down the Sunshine path (where the Mt Juneau trail zigzags the alpine). This avalanche may have been what triggered the landslide at the end of Basin Road, blocking off the  [ Read More ]

Consider a different descent route then  [ Read More ]

Above ~2,000’ I measured 10-15 centimeters of snow. There was a ~3 cm melt crust. On sunny aspects this wasn’t present.  [ Read More ]

Went up McGinnis winter route in shoes today. The snowline was at approximately tree line. Travel conditions were good overall, rarely sunk in past ankle deep and didn’t need microspikes except for at the very top. Soft snow going up to the ridge, would be decent skiing, might crust overnight though. From the ridge up  [ Read More ]
