Multiple glide cracks (AKA crevasses) opening up in The Lip area of Tuckerman Ravine. The openings are large enough to fall into, running across the slope, with the depth unknown. On Saturday they were partially obscured by unsettled new snow from the previous weekend. We observed a skier fall into one of these holes to his armpits while climbing up.
