Small natural avalanche near Fairy Lake

Small natural avalanches in windblown snow near Fairy Lake, observed on October 19th.

From obs: "There was some natural avalanche activity coming down off of the cliffs above... Looks like they came down either yesterday afternoon or last night, there was fresh windblown snow on top of the debris. We did observe some wind activated spindrift coming down the rocks when the wind picked up on the ridge and sent it down, very light sluffs but constant.... The natural activity we saw was wet slides and on the surface, it didn’t step down into any of the layers underneath just yet. The wind is strong and will continue to load high elevation ridge lines and cross load lower slopes."
