Comments
Lots of natural avalanches in the Ogden Mountains over this last storm and wind event. This avalanche looks to have failed on a buried surface hoar layer loaded by this last storm cycle. It is hard to see in the photo but the slide appears to be very well connected, looks like it propagated across at least to small ridges.
