Unknown date. Jan. 6 was just a guess. It took out a bunch of trees and/or bent them over. Having skied in this area for almost a decade, this is the first major avy I have seen at this location. Photos were shot at 8950 ft.
FORECASTER NOTE: This path is a regular offender. Often the debris does not run far enough to reach the road. I have seen it cross the road a few times since I've been forecasting here over the last 4 or 5 years. Given the small amount of snow on the debris, the most likely release date is Wednesday, Jan 11. Southwest wind was strong which loads the starting zone in a big way. Another foot or so of snow fell at the end of the storm.
