Lake Fork Talus area to Wildy Bowl 26022020
After seeing the conditions on Wheeler (above post) we were interested in evaluating conditions across the valley to the west in the Lake Fork Basin and Wildy Bowl At Tree Line and Below Tree Line. 

No new avalanche activity in the Williams Lake area over the past few days, until later in the afternoon when temps heated up some to produce some S/SE facing point release loose wet slides without any deeper triggering. Old small and localized storm wind slabs at the North ridgeline of LFP were appreciated. 

Snowpack data are as shown in our snow pit. No major/significant results were produced from our tests. We did not evaluate the highest alpine terrain. Cornices are starting to build, and we only dug down to 105cm. We were not able to hit the ground with a 3m probe in our pit, so we did not see any DH. All the layers were remarkably hard in the midpack, compared to usual conditions this time of year. Rounds are consistent with the previous storms as cited previously. العناية بالبشرة

Lots of skiable terrain is available in the greater Williams Creek area. Very good skiing conditions on steep terrain after the previous storm. The Fingers area has been getting a lot of travel as well!
