Avalanche Details

Unknown if these were triggered at the tail end of yesterday's (1/4/23) foot of snow with strong winds, or this morning (remotely) by riders along the ridge.

Some of these slabs look to have broken somewhere near the base of the snowpack while others maybe in weak layers in the middle of the pack. Either way, they are flashing red lights saying the snowpack is unstable.
