Two natural avalanches observed near Lionhead on 12/15 and another two observed by a separate group on 12/14. All occurred well below the high ridgelines and likely broke several days earlier.
From obs:"We rode up Denny Creek towards Watkins Creek and spent the day below the ridge where we saw two natural avalanches. These avalanches broke 12-18" deep on weak faceted snow above a stiff crust. The first avalanche presumably happened sometime near the end of the last storm cycle (12/11), as it had a few inches of snow on the debris. The second was more recent, in the last 24-36 hours. Both were at 8500' and were on NE and E-facing slopes. "
