Comments
Saw this slide which I assume is from last weekend's cycle as I was skinning up Beaver's Envy this afternoon. It's on an east face that runs down onto the Sink Hollow road. Very similar aspect, elevation, slope angle, and topography as the St. Charles slide last week, just 6 miles south and much closer to the Idaho-Utah border. There is also a smaller, what looks like a sympathetic slide, further down the ridge-line to the north: 200 feet wide that ran for 400-500 vertical feet.
