Avalanche Details

Three remotely triggered avalanches into main bowl. One on the Widowmaker slide path. These were reported to be 2-4 feet deep at the crown. One 300 feet wide and another around 200 feet wide.

The avalanche lower down in Main Bowl was probably around 600-800' wide. It is really hard to say how deep the avalanche was from so far away, but it was likely a similar depth to the other remotely triggered avalanches also mentioned in this observation.
