Location: Hunter Creek

Route & General Observations

Large natural avalanches on all aspects and elevations up to D3. Presumably most of these ran during the storm cycle, but the largest one ran during the afternoon of 3/30. It was on a SW face at approximately 5k or 6k, I’ve watermarked the pic of it for clarity. Also included a pic of another deep storm cycle avy, and a debris pile from a north face (1k vert ft, 3 ft crown, 500 ft wide). Additionally, some concerning human bowling from natural rock fall. Obviously lovely alpine pow snow texture on protected north faces.
