We observed a natural avalanche on Saddle Peak on our drive home today. The Bridger Range received 7" of heavy snow equal to 1" of snow water equivalent in the last 24 hours. During the day we saw heavy wind-loading occurring on the high peaks of the range including Saddle.
Bridger Bowl Ski Patrol noted a few slides in the morning (one cornice triggered), estimated 2' deep.
"...cornice triggered slide on saddle today. Broke a couple of feet deep, and I couldn’t get too close to the crown but it seemed to have initially broken in the new snow and then stepped down to a PWL below the recent crust...propagated maybe 130ft wide and ran all the way over the saddle cliff to the flats."
