Zone or Region:
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes
Size 3: Could bury and destroy a car, damage a truck, destroy a wood frame house, or break a few trees
Very wide, deep crown on Sixty Six Hundred Ridge in the upper Icicle. East facing, at... 6,600ft!
The crowns were spanning the entire feature that I could see, roughly 500m wide.
I found that the amount of new snow at road elevation increases substantially as one travels towards the crest, from 5cm at Bridge Crk to over 45cm at the Rock Island Bridge.
