Notes

Forecaster obs: This morning on drive to Bridger we saw crowns from recent avalanches almost continuously between Bridger Peak and the Pinnacles. Probably 6 paths had avalanches. 2-3’ deep across all starting zones. Estimate they ran late yesterday or this morning due to not very covered from yesterday’s snow, and crowns from Sunday on Saddle/Argentina were covered. Saddle was in a thick cloud of blowing snow. Strong wind continued all day. Moving across mid mountain later in the day. -AM
