Size 3: Could bury and destroy a car, damage a truck, destroy a wood frame house, or break a few trees
Big wet slab release, 2-6ft depth and 1200ft wide. Looks like it started as a glide release on the rocks at the point of the crown. Tough to judge from far away but the debris appeared to have reached valley bottom via the narrow gullies below the bowl.
Signs of Unstable Snow
Lots of recent glide and wet avalanche activity observed on our tour from Glacier Bridge up onto the Cushman Crest.
Couple big wet slab crowns in the Tatoosh, plus innumerable cracks below rock bands with many glide releases depositing 10+ft debris into the Nisqually river valley.
Near treeline the pack had settled enough to bend trees up to 6" diameter (the portion of the trunk above the snow surface, at least!) to be nearly parallel to the slope.
