Might be time for permits up there in HPW.
Avalanche training is the piece that is missing. It's not enough to own skis, skins, a beacon and an airbag.
Looking at someone else snow pit readings is meaningless. A backcountry skier needs to have almost all of the same certifications and knowledge that a ski guide is expected to carry. You dig your own pits and you know how to read them. You know where and when you can go and more importantly you know enough not to.
