Good stability outside Island Park

Good stability outside Island Park


From the Gallatin NF Avalanche Center:

We rode up Yale Creek, then to the Mt. Jefferson Bowl, then to Tin Cup Pass north of Mt Raes. We  saw no avalanche activity or signs of instability. It was calm out and the wind was not moving snow. The debris piles on Mt. Jefferson were from an avalanche cycle the end of December and they are still visible. January has been dry! 

Our stability test did not break on the surface hoar. There needs to be more snow on top of it. Possibly on a wind drifted area, but in general, the stability is good until we get more snow.
