Twin Peaks Avalanche

Blue X marks the location of a snowmobiler who was buried by an avalanche on Jan. 20th. The victim was uncovered and transported to medical care. 

From Obs: "The snow depth at the crown was 60 inches deep, with one wind slab sitting on another on facets, and at the toe of the slope the snow depth was less than 20 inches deep.  The fracture traveled roughly 800 feet in and around the larch trees near the top of the slope and it deposited debris in 3 different run outs."
