Comments: 

Slide initiated above cliffs at about 12,200 feet as a small slab and run through the gut of the N. face of Tuk. Below the cliffs it broke out a much larger piece of snow appx. 400' wide. 6" of new snow was measured in conjunction with this even at our Golds Basin study plot sat. night/sunday. Winds were up from the south with this storm and crazy moist east flow on Sunday may have dropped more snow in selct locations that we measured. Crown est. at 2 feet in depth.
