Two avalanches hit the North Ogden Divide today.  One of the avalanches is quite large D2+ the other a D2.  These both released at a similar elevation and aspect.  I am guessing they failed on the weak snow that was forming at lower elevations last week.  I went over to take a look at the avalanches tonight right before dark.  The larger avalanche on the "Chicken Creek" path had lots of dirt in on the bed surface which makes me think it failed on or near the ground.  Will try and find out more tomorrow.
