Comments
Limited view and poor visibility contributed to limited information. May have been 2 pockets or 1. Pockety in nature, small in relation to the Dog Dish starting zones. Mid slope. Crown appeared to be slightly filled in and debris not very covered suggesting estimated occurrence time between yesterday morning and last night. Likley same weak layer as the larger NE Red Baldy avalanche, FCsf that formed last week or graupel from the early in the storm at the end of last week. Did not appear to go into old snow.
