"Observed two dry-loose slides and one slab avalanche on the NE-facing slope of Peak 10,024 in the Shower Creek basin on Sunday, 2/28 - all were presumably naturally triggered." Photo: K. Busby

From email: "I saw some older slab avalanches on The Thunderer mountain, in northeast YNP (observed today). These avalanches happened on westerly aspects around 9700'. I'd hypothesize that they happened in correlation with the very strong westerly winds that happened around Feb. 21-22."

Sled Skiing in Third Yellow mule... after an air onto the slope the impact from landing resulted in a fracture and failure to / near the ground... in addition, a remote trigger occurred on adjacent slope... 200-300 ft to the skiers right. No body was caught in either slide. Skier that initiated failure was moving at high speed and was beyond slide path before majority of snow movement began. Photo: W. Miller

From obs (2/28/21): "I’ve attached a photo of a small, D1.5, slide I saw on a thin S facing slope at 9000’. It was definitely more than a few days old. HS in the areas you would want to ski is 130-180cm, with a distinct drop felt with a probe at the bottom of the pack. Other areas are very scoured up there." S. Jonas

From obs: "With recent persistent winds the cornices are growing to impressive size. Noted a few natural cornice drops on the south 'rim' of Sage Basin." Photo: R. Larson
