Avalanche: Hatcher Pass

Location: bennet ridge?

Route & General Observations

Toured up Hatch peak and $1000 run. Went up road and came back around with buddy on sled about an hour later and saw slide that did not notice the first lap up. Light was somewhat bad so possible I just missed it but pretty sure it wasn’t there. Did not see tracks anywhere near it so assume it was a natural. Looked to be all the new snow. 2ft deep or so by 500ft wide.
