This picture from Baxter Basin was passed on to the CBAC sfaff.

2 large persistent slab avalanches on East aspects of Richmond Mt. Both of these initiated from ridgeline and quickly stepped down to weak layers in the lower snowpack. Debris from both avalanches triggered additional slab avalanches lower in the track.
