Snow Profile Comments
Slide occurred as part of a large connected wind slab. Large slabs have formed along Scotts and the Radar Love Bowls. It was a real mixed bag of snow surfaces today with settled powder of some west facing slopes, melt freeze crusts on south facing slopes, significant hoar frost on sheltered, shaded aspects, and some well established but still touchy wind slabs and cornices in cross loaded areas and on the north and east facing aspects.
Comments
Was touring around the USA Bowl area and went for a look at the NE slopes off of Scotts Hill. As I turned around to head up to the antennas and take a look at the Monitors, I felt a collapse and heard what sounded like a slide. It wasn't until I got up to the antennas and looked back that I saw the avalanche. Crown looked to be 1.5 ft. and and about 125 ft. wide. Unclear how far it ran. Slide entrained quite a bit of snow and definitely could have buried someone.
