Had a beautiful and windy #socialdistancing
splitboard tour in the california sierra today. it felt like spring down low with great corn and almost t-shirt weather and still full on winter up high with howling winds and facemask conditions.
the avalanche problems reflected this ranging from persistent and wind slab problems up high to wet slab problems down low. though no problems were very widespread we had to still change our thinking between spring and winter as we changed slope aspect and elevation to travel safely through the mountains as they are transitioning from winter to spring .
if you are getting out the next few weeks keep these things in mind and dial things way back so as not to stress mountain rescue groups or hospitals with preventable accidents during this time of crisis. mellow, fun, low ego, socially distanced exercise is the name of the game!
