Comments

Massive avalanches from the pre Xmas avalanche cycle.  Pretty much all of the upper south fork of Big Springs has avalanched.  Aspects include west, north and east.  Crowns are scattered all over with many visible mid slope.  These snapped a number of trees and mowed over large amounts of Alders.
