Snowmobile triggered avalanche, Portal Creek

Snowmobilers up Portal Creek in the northern Gallatin Range experienced cracking/collapsing and triggered this small avalanche. The slide broke 1' foot deep and nearly 100' wide. Fortunately, nobody was caught. Avalanche activity is the best indicator the snowpack is unstable. Photo: A. Donovan
