This afternoon my group triggered a dry-loose avalanche on the north face of Big Timber Peak in the Crazies. The slide was about 12 inches deep, 50 feet wide, and ran about 1,000 vertical feet. Thankfully, no one was injured. We didn’t officially measure the slope angle but we’re estimating it to be in the 38-degree zone—prime avalanche territory. The slide consisted of new snow that fell during this recent storm. It hadn’t bonded to the thick crust underneath and released during the second skier’s run.
