Two Dogs

Two different avalanches reported in the area that occurred during the storm.

  1. From T. Glew observation: "The only avalanche I saw was a steep north facing slope near the ridge line to the East of Upper Days. It seems to have run mid the storm and was about a foot deep and maybe a hundred feet wide."
  2. From email from J. Campanelli: "Honestly I couldn’t really tell what was going on here. At 12:30pm 4/13, it looked like a crown with an up track triggering it far lookers right(the usual two dogs skinner). It didn't look like any other tracks on two dogs or at the bottom. There were 4 people standing at the bottom where you would transition. Hopefully they report with better details. Im pretty sure it was an avalanche, but maybe it was just a goofy ski track...that is how certain I am. Pink line is where I thought the crown was."
