Notes

A skier in Hyalite reported widespread avalanche activity in the Divide drainage. From the email: "Saw this set of crowns just to the looker's left of Divide Peak proper.  Appear to be cornice triggered, I suspect they all released sympathetically, maybe sometime yesterday.  Impressively connected, definite PWL issue. SE aspect. Crowns spanned nearly 1/2 mile of terrain." Photo: B. VandenBos
