Comments

Observed two avalanches today above Wolf Creek Ski Area today on the west side of the Ogden Valley. There were in a place I have not seen avalanches before relatively low elevation. Will try and get up and look at them tomorrow. They were on windloaded slopes so maybe from the high winds this weekend.
