LOCATION: Kebler Pass Area
DATE OF OBSERVATION: 01/21/2015
NAME: Zach Guy
SUBJECT: Natural slab avalanche off of Scarp Ridge
ASPECT: North East
ELEVATION: 12,000 ft.

AVALANCHES: Fresh persistent slab avalanche off of NE aspect of Scarp Ridge, new in the past 2 days. Looks like it might have been triggered by rockfall. 3 feet at its deepest, most of it was about 1-2 feet, ~20 feet wide at apex, fanned out to about 100 feet wide. Multiple failure planes, looked like the Jan 11 interface on the flanks and ground in the middle. Surprisingly shallow snow depth for this part of the zone; I believe that path also ran during the Solstice Storm. HS-NR-R2-D2-O/G
