Location Name or Route
In case no one submits pictures, Diving Board glided.
Observed it about 1:30 pm Monday April 8 from Porter Pass west of Mt. Raymond. Pretty sure it came down Sunday into Monday as I summited Gobblers Sunday and did not see it then.
Similar in size to the Blue Ice glide that came down Thursday into Friday April 5. A block of snow 200 feet by 200 feet glided off the steep shear rock above the run and covered the south half in debris running to the flat. Fanned out to maybe 400 feet wide at the bottom.
My feeling is the glide hazard will continue through this next storm the rest of spring until the snow slides or melts. Seems like the start zones are getting progressively more north and the Bonkers glide cracks have deformed snow beneath them. Would not be surprised to see it run full track in the next week or so. Ditto Stairs. Lots of the steep rock faces in Big Cottonwood and Millcreek have visible glide cracks and seem primed to go.
