Sidecountry Slide near Bridger Bowl

Photos From the Field | Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center


Wow looking at some crazy pictures that really make me think. Sounds like no one was injured (lucky). Made some great turns in East Vail last week the snow felt solid but... Its a crazy year out there everybody be safe. We all know that tracks don't equal stability right? More snow on its way! POWWWDER!!!!

The photos from the avalanche center are great! the give one an idea of what slides in a very bad year. The area that slid apparently had been skied a lot, but the compaction was on top of a slab and a layer of depth hoar existed underneath. They had a lot of moisture and the whole thing failed. It is amazing that no one was caught in it.

Huge. I need to pay more attention to conditions too. Not sure there's any foreseeing one like this. Thanks
