Comments
Numerous small remotely triggered avalanches from snowmobilers passing underneath on the road. There was a spike in precipitation intensity just prior to the snowmobilers passing by. I have never seen any activity on these slopes in 10 years of experience in this canyon which is a tribute to how sensitive things were.
