These are observations from Doug Chabot's field trip on 3/8, Friday:
- One slide was triggered on a steep (40 deg) southeast facing slope at Round Lake outside Cooke City. It failed 8" deep on a layer of graupel and small facets. An adjacent hill slid at the same depth beforehand. This layer is not on most slopes, but as this slide shows it is on some. Doug was in the area and dug a pit in the crown soon after it was triggered.
- A slide under the cornice on the northeast face of Abundance looked to be 1 foot deep and 200' wide.
- A snowboarder reported triggering an 8" deep slab on the south face of Scotch Bonnett in one of the Rasta's.
