Comments

Came upon these 12/29.  Unsure if they were naturals that came out some time late in the day 12/28, or remotely triggered from snowmobile riding around in the flats around the same time.  There were 3 separate slides, all on a NE aspect along the same ridge, all areas that are very prone to wind loading.  All broke to the ground in rocky areas.  Deepest point, at the most wind loaded was about 3.5 feet, with average depth around 2.5 feet.  Photos are a bit tough to see due to poor light and pics from the phone.
