Natural Saddle Peak Deep Slab Crowns 2

A natural 4-8' deep slab avalanche broke on Saddle Peak within the last couple days (2/6 or 2/7) during the current storm. Huge avalanches like this are likely and can be triggered by a human for the next couple days. The mountains received 3-5 feet of snow equal to 3-5" of SWE over the last week with more snow in the forecast. This heavy load is overloading a fragile snowpack, especially on wind loaded slopes.
