Stop Please! And the natural avalanche cycle creeps onwards. Yet another one today, failed this morning off Axtell, Green Lake Bowl. SS-N-R1/D2-O, to the ground.

Failed below a cornice, above and below a cliff, to the ground on depth hoar. Ran before 11am March 1st on a sunny north of east aspect. Close up doesn’t show any large pieces of cornice broken off, winds were the lightest they have been in days.
