Comments
Plan today was to ski Suicide on Superior. Winds were ripping up high with obvious cross loading and we didn't really like being in the run out of some of the slopes being cross loaded. Driving down from up past Superior we observed what we assume was a natural avalanche come off Little Superior which produced a sizable powder cloud. There were a couple crowns up there, we aren't sure which one we saw. One was maybe 500' wide.
