This is a repeater which released HUGE on Christmas Day. DETAILS I visited the slide on Jan 3 and was on the bed surface in the starting zone. A few inches of snow fell after that and then that snow faceted from around Jan 9 to Jan 13 or so. This is no doubt the weak layer.
It should be noted that this small path that crosses the Pleasant Creek road has not avalanched again since Christmas. It did release on Christmas Day. This is a dangerous and unsuspecting path that could easily catch someone traveling up the road.
