Avalanche Details

3 New Glide releases in the past 24hrs on Seattle Ridge. There is a 4th glide avalanche south of the photographed ones, but I believe that released before 12/21.

The smallest one was near, but just south of the uptrack, the rest were a few sub-ridges south.

Photos from 10am on 12/22 from Seattle Ridge Moto parking lot. I was in the area on 12/21 and hadn't noticed any of these releases.
