Comments
We found an apparent glide avalanche initiating at about 10500 ft on the NE face of Twin Peak above "Blue Ice". This slide was adjacent to the recently reported glide avalanche in the Diving Board area. The slide left a massive debris pile that propagated a few thousand vertical feet making a dog leg left turn and covering the entire broad fork valley floor before terminating at around 8000 ft. Uncertain when it occurred.
