Notes

One wet slab released north of Bridger Peak around 1400, probably from a cornice fall. Today (4/19/19) there were more and larger wet slides on top of and adjacent to those that slid yesterday. Activity started before noon and slides were D1.5-D2 wet loose. There was widespread activity in addition to yesterday's slides on all slopes from Bridger Peak through Frazier Basin.
