Unintentionally triggered a 200'-250' wide avalanche in South Monitor. Avalanche ran roughly 700' vertical feet with an average depth of 10"-14". This slope previously avalanched on November 23rd- reported by Mark White. View his report (https://utahavalanchecenter.org/avalanche/40305) We chose not to investigate the crown because of the large amount of snow still remaining above where the avalanche broke.
