Comments
A nataural avalanche that has since been covered in snow, we think it happened on Thursday. Wind loading into the bowl was very obvious from the ridgeline. The bowl broke almost the entire length across with the deepest section of the avalanche being lookers left on the shoulder of the bowl.
