Bear Basin Cornice Drop

Bear Basin Cornice Drop

I kicked off a decent sized cornice on the Beehive Bear Basin Ridge.  I was glad to see that it did not propagate, which matched my stability tests. It ran a ways downhill because the snowpack was all facets and they just flowed like sand chunks down the hill. Photo: GNFAC
