Did you observe any avalanches?
Size 3: Could bury and destroy a car, damage a truck, destroy a wood frame house, or break a few trees
Broke to ground and mixed with trees, mud, rocks, etc.
Forecasters note: This avalanche was first observed on the 13th, and likely occurred late on the 12th or early on the 13th.
Signs of Unstable Snow
L-N-R2-D3-G: Cedar and I saw a wet loose, natural avalanche that was small relative to the path, but was large enough to break trees and entrain boulders. It broke to the saturated ground and ran several hundred vertically feet in a relatively narrow path.
Observed Avalanche Problem #1:
Poor refreeze with saturated snow and ground means that lowland wet loose avalanches and potential glide in higher, steeper areas are still likely.
