Route & General Observations

This small avalanche (potentially skier triggered within the past
few days) was observed while skinning up Bertha Creek. Starting
elevation ~3200′, ~30-40′ wide, slid ~600′ nearly to the valley.
The slab failed just underneath the 2″ thick surface sun crust.
Not a large slide, but decent debris pile at the bottom. Whole
southern aspect was very sun-crusted skiing up the valley, as
well as the eastern aspect of Cornbiscuit skiing up to Superbowl.
