Comments

Avalanches everywhere on the Skyline. Mostly east and northeast aspects at all elevations. Slides are breaking deep and wide, taking out the entire seasons snowpack.

Four slides easily viewed from the Miller Flat trailhead.

 

And this large cornice break and slab near the popular hike to the roadside shots.
