Location Name or Route
Travel today was from Alta to Days Fork- Cardiff Fork- Mineral fork. Snow totals ranged from 18"-30". Snow was unreactive during our travels. We skied into a number of wind pillows expecting them to fracture but all stayed in place. Long running sluff in steeper terrain.
We noticed a recently skier triggered avalanche in Mineral Fork on GB NO and went to have a look. It was about 16" deep propagating 100' down slope, 150' wide, and running about 500' before fanning out on a lower angle slope. Ski tracks in, and ski tracks out. Weak layer was a mix of graupel and rimed precipitation particles 45 cm below the surface.
