Hello and welcome to March! The meteorological Spring has sprung and on this week’s show we chat about some of the signs we’re seeing in the backcountry that tell us that things are warming up! We take a look back at the last storm’s snow totals, the natural avalanche cycle that followed it, and a look at the weather ahead, before we jump into a Porch Chat discussion about glopping, waxing, the R-scale for classifying avalanches, alpha angles for assessing runouts, and more!
Thanks to Scott, Kevin and Mason for joining me on the front porch, and thanks to you for listening! Don’t forget to check out MountainTrip.com for more information on the Women’s Intro to Ski Mountaineering Camp coming up or to sign-up for our upcoming Rec Level 2 Avalanche Course here in Telluride on March 18-20th!
Play safe out there friends and, until next time… THINK SNOW!
