Meridian Peak avalanche

From email on 3/12/21: "...silver creek up to the saddle of Meridian in the NP yesterday. ... It was on the S aspect at 9,500ft of the shoulder that takes you up to the steep trees W of Meridian. It must have occurred in the last 24-48hrs due to not much snow had fallen since the avalanche occurred. It ran out down into the trees below. ... The crown looks to be over a foot deep, and the length must have been 50ft"
