These are two natural soft slab avalanches believed to run
sometime at the tail end of Thursday’s (3/24) storm.
W facing, 2300′ and around 30deg at crown then steepening quickly.
Approximately 16-18″ deep, 250′
wide and running 500′. Weak layer was a thin (.5cm) layer of 2mm
surface hoar intermixed with 1mm near surface facets directly
under the new storm snow.
**A significant portion of hangfire was triggered at least a day
later remotely around 30′ away from the ridge. Crown of hangfire
was on a 24deg slope. This is significant because it proves the
new snow has not settled out everywhere yet.
