Avalanche on Mt Henderson

Avalanche on Mt Henderson


 Was out today and noticed this large avalanche on the south side of Henderson. Looks like it happened today (1/24) or yesterday (1/23). Possible remote trigger, there were snowmobilers riding underneath that zone. The slide looks about 200 feet across and 4 feet deep in the thickest spot. D2. 

Dug a pit over there. HS 145. ECTP19 50 cm down on surface hoar. 

From B. Fredlund: "...large avalanche observed today on the SE aspect Mt. Henderson was not visable there at 4pm yesterday." (1/23).
