Comments

Another glide avalanche released in broads fork sometime after Schmookler observed the two glide avalanches he reported in bonkers and the blue ice.  This one on the diving board released sometime after his party traveled through yesterday and this morning when we arrived.  This one produced a fairly sizable debris pile.

Great photos by tobe Long.  "Skiing from Gobbler's Knob I was able to see the recent glide avalanche in Broad's Fork. I am sure this is one that has already been reported, but I thought I would share these photos to clarify the location".

Thanks for the photos.
