Comments

The broad mid-slope avalanche didn't run too far as it mostly stopped on a small bench below.  I'm not sure when this hard slab avalanche occurred or if it was natural or remote triggered.  Looked fairly fresh and there were sled tracks in the bowl to the north (right side looking up).

This one was not worth further investigation, given the danger.
