Notes

From YCSP: "One of our patrollers spotted a snowmobile triggered avalanche on Cedar Mountain this afternoon. The patroller reported a track entering and exiting the path. The slope was NE facing at approximately 8,600’. It was difficult estimating the dimensions of the slide as the visibility was limited and we were quite a ways from the avalanche."
