Comments: 
As we were riding up the road saw where the avalanche had pulled out and gone across the road. I would imagine there is a high probability of sliding again as it reloads. We did feel a few collapses in the large fields we were riding through. The image attached is poor, but you can make out part of the fracture line. Forecaster comment: Steve, thanks so much for the great info. Observations like this help to save lives.
