Hairline Triggers...

If you ski in the backcountry, you've heard about the remotely triggered avalanche in Hatcher Pass this past weekend.  There was a flurry of pictures on TTips, and various other blogs who posted about the touchy conditions.  But you couldn't help but notice the cold smoke (yes in April!) on north facing aspects.

I put together a quick little vid of some of the pictures I took and video of my bonding tests.  The bottom line is that they correlated perfectly to the activity we saw on the hill.  Wide propagation and clean and fast shears.

Enjoy the April pow and ski safe!
