Recent Natural Avalanche near Cooke City


From Email:

"Observed a fresh natural avalanche this afternoon on Woody Ridge. The avalanche occurred on a NW aspect, around 9200' (likely last night). I'd estimate the size to be 1-3' deep, and about 100' wide. 

No other avalanche activity observed today.  (ski tour up Republic Creek this morning, low visibility while I was up there).

No collapsing. Minor cracking of the fresh, dense wind drifts, though they felt quite stubborn.

New snow:  about 10", dense/ rimed forms."
