Recent slab avalanche, Taylor Fork

This recent slab avalanche was observed in the Taylor Fork on Wednesday, Jan. 9th. It appears to have failed naturally on weak facets near the ground. Avalanche activity is the number one sign the snowpack is unstable. Although avalanches are becoming harder to trigger without new snow and wind, recent activity is a clear reminder avalanches remain possible. Photo: A Wheeler
