Comments

Noticed this natural avalanche in eastern Miller Bowl around noon 11/29/2015.  Just a little bit of fresh snow from overnight on debris...  The 2' deep avalanche looks to have run on old snow.  The avalanche occurred on a drifted slope under the cliffs, with smooth underlying ground and shallow preexisting snow (from before Thanksgiving).
