Comments
I went to see the avalanche that was reported on Saturday, January 13th, above Big Flat. I went south about 2,000 yards along the ridge from below and noticed 3 more avalanches that had been naturally triggered on the same ridgeline, i.e., the ridge betwee n Big Flat and Dry Fork. We had skied this same slope last Sunday without incident. The avalanches weren't that deep, but would have definitely given one a ride!
