Avalanches: This picture tells a really cool story about avalanches and you can definitely look at it for some time. Many old sluffs had run through the terrain without triggering much for avalanches. Then during a period of intense loading Tuesday morning, natural Wind Slab Avalanches started to run and thoughts further stepped down to the 3/18 interface. At least one of these become very large in size.
