Notes

From the ridge late this morning (1/24) we saw multiple large crowns in Truman Gulch on the west side behind Bridger Bowl. Biggest was behind d-route (photo).

Two other slides visible today during brief break before more snow. One behind ridge north R2-D2, and one behind the patrol tow R3-D2.5. All 2-3.5’ deep, latter two not as wide. All big. Broke naturally, probably overnight after 1.6" of swe yesterday and moderate westerly winds. Photo: GNFAC
