Notes

Skiers in Hyalite saw a natural wet slab near Blackmore Lake. From the email: "The slide was located around 300 yards South of Blackmore Lake on a West facing slope at an elevation just above 7400 feet.  It broke below a cliff band about 3' deep (to the ground) and ran a few hundred feet (almost to the skin track)."
