Comments
Noticed this natural slide in Meadows. Had some new snow on it so maybe happened later in the day or evening of 11/24. Didn't get close enough for depth or width measurements. Pretty typical in size to what frequently occurs there. Did come across a large animal track that traversed above the slide. (2nd photo) After seeing the moose slide observation from 10420, thought it possibly slid sympathetically to the critter. Who knows... We skied good snow paying attention to slope angles and/or slopes with no October snow. That said, no shortage of collapses felt in our travels.
