From obs: "While touring above the canyon this morning, I noticed a very recent wet slide (would guess this incident occurred yesterday afternoon, March 4th). This was a skier triggered slide on a E aspect at an elevation of 7200. This slide was roughly 50 feet wide and ran about 50 feet, I estimated this crown to be 2-3 feet deep, slid all the way to the ground. This occurred below a steep roller."

"Ran into this slide today. Tail end of Middle Basin. Seemed to have happened sometime in the last week (2/23-24). Most likely during the heavy windloading event. Seemed to run on very small facets we believe formed during the cold spell before the last big storm hit." Photo: S. Knowles

"Observed two dry-loose slides and one slab avalanche on the NE-facing slope of Peak 10,024 in the Shower Creek basin on Sunday, 2/28 - all were presumably naturally triggered." Photo: K. Busby

From email: "I saw some older slab avalanches on The Thunderer mountain, in northeast YNP (observed today). These avalanches happened on westerly aspects around 9700'. I'd hypothesize that they happened in correlation with the very strong westerly winds that happened around Feb. 21-22."

Sled Skiing in Third Yellow mule... after an air onto the slope the impact from landing resulted in a fracture and failure to / near the ground... in addition, a remote trigger occurred on adjacent slope... 200-300 ft to the skiers right. No body was caught in either slide. Skier that initiated failure was moving at high speed and was beyond slide path before majority of snow movement began. Photo: W. Miller

From obs (2/28/21): "I’ve attached a photo of a small, D1.5, slide I saw on a thin S facing slope at 9000’. It was definitely more than a few days old. HS in the areas you would want to ski is 130-180cm, with a distinct drop felt with a probe at the bottom of the pack. Other areas are very scoured up there." S. Jonas
