Our two week storm cycle has slammed 5 to 10” of water weight onto the existing snow pack, overloading several buried weak layers. So once again, numerous deep, large slides were reported in steep terrain yesterday, both natural and explosive triggered. Crowns averaged 3 to 6 feet deep, several were hundreds of feet wide, and one crown was about a mile in length. Many removed large timber in their track, and a number of paths ran bigger and deeper than has been seen in over 30 years.
been monitoring the avy risk out there for awhile...looks like i'll be sticking to some of the lower angled terrain off alta if i can get up there. looks like it might be an extra skin path up from the bird!
