UTAH AVALANCHE CONDITIONS 2012-2013

CALLING ALL UTAHN'S.........

About 3 years ago Ed F created a wonderful and very useful thread entitled "Wasatch Avalanche Conditions". This thread is much like the thread from previous years. Anyone should feel free to contribute, regardless of the depth of their avalanche knowledge. More information is better than less information.

This thread is a place to provide field observations, pow shots and the overall expirence of the day. The posts do not have to be confined to the Wasatch Range only. The Uintas, La Sals, Tushars, Oquirrhs, Wasatch Ranges ect.... are all fair game. These mountain ranges have limited avalanche forecast information (if any) and see only a handful of visitors a year. However there are a select few who go and venture out to these remote places, so any information of what the snowpack/conditions are like would be more than useful.

THIS THREAD IS A WORK IN PROGESS. IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEA'S OR SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO IMPROVE THIS THREAD PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

Observation Nov. 25th 2012

Decided to take a look into Silver Fork's coverage on the 26th. Skinned up using Grizzly Gulch which was THIN and ICY! There were patches of dirt on the south and west facing aspects. Ended up skiing North Davenport which was a little rocky at the entrance. Got some surface sluff activity on the last big drop into the main gully but nothing major. Skinned up and out of Silver Fork and skied (well more like traversed) out of Grizzly Gulch. Avalanche danger was extremely low.

Here is a shot of my Twin skiing North Davenport in November.
