Notes

From e-mail on 2/1/19: "The Reas Peak area had 7 slides that I could see from the bottom of the drainage, most of them looked to have occurred with the last storm and had a northerly influence to their aspect. The largest and most recent slide I included in the [above photo], Reas Peak is the highest peak on the left in the photo and the slide path is on a NE aspect. If you look close at the photo you can see a 2-3’ crown on the far left side of the frame on the north aspect of Reas from another slide."

Another observer saw a large slide near Lionhead (photo) and one on Reas Peak from the same cycle.
