Comments: 
I went up to Big Flat to do some skiing and noticed two avalanches. The first appeared to be triggered by a snowmobiler as there were tracks on the sides of the slide. The slide occurred on the ridge just to the west of the top of Snake Eyes North. The second was a repeater avalanche reported on January 13th and wasn't as deep. I skied nearby on February 28th on a shallower slope and did not see anything. The avalanches must have occurred in the last two days.
