Comments

Another natural from early Thursday morning.  5 or 6 inches of new snow was enough to tip the balance and overload the old weak snow near the ground.

Comments

These recent avalanches are not monsters but are certainly large enough to bury a person.  I would not want to wind up in this pile of debris
