“Don’t think this has been reported and I think it may have happened yesterday afternoon as I was in the area until about 230 and feel like I would have noticed it. Anthracite mesa.”

Confirmed with my ski partner yesterday that it was not there when we left the area at around 230 and I was the first one at the trailhead today. Thanks”

(CBAC Edit: This avalanche was previously observed on 12/18 and estimated to have run naturally towards the end of the last natural avalanche cycle.)
