Route & General Observations

Two Large Avalanches have crossed the summer trail into Barber Cabin on the Lower Russian Lake Area. Both avalanches were reported to have travelled well out on to the Lake itself.
This has made travelling the summer trail difficult to not possible at all. There is significant overflow on the lake as well.

Avalanche Details

These avalanches came down at 3am on 2/25 and awoke the occupants of the cabin. They reported travelling well out on to the lake to get around debris field the next day. Debris was reported to be impassible on the summer trail and 150 yards wide (estimate).

I will check out these avalanches on 2/26 and get some pictures in the next observation Friday afternoon!
