More large avalanches near Cooke


Attached are a few photos of old deep slab avalanches north of town. 

The first photo is a south face north of round lake above 10,000’. The crown was mostly filled in but the deepest exposed part was 2-3’ deep. 

The second is the south face of scotch bonnet. Hard to tell the depth of the crown but it’s very visible from the lulu road, so probably pretty deep. 

...Saw lots of recent small soft avalanches that broke pretty (8-12”) shallow in the new snow for last week, both in wind drifted areas and non wind loaded slopes.
