SS-ASr-R2-D1-I SE Aspect, 9000 feet, 35-40 degrees Remotely triggered from tracks visible on right side of photo. This photo shows one of five similar remotely triggered avalanches today in the Silver Creek drainage and 9595 Glades. All five avalanches released from 35-40 degree rollovers at the interface beneath ~20cm of new snow and were all size D1. The five avalanches spanned from 8500-9500 feet elevation on SE, S, SW, and NW aspects. No activity (e.g. wumphing, cracking, avalanches) was observed below the new-old snow interface.
