Comments

Only a few natural avalanches from the Sat night through Sunday storm.  Photo is of the most unique, looks to have started as just a storm slab at the ridge, but debris triggered a hard slab mid slope.  Hard slab looked to have failed at the ground, assumed on facets.  Unknown if it was a repeater.
