Northern Gallatin, 2018-11-07

Natural avalanche activity was widespread in Hyalite on Tuesday 11/6. Obs from e-mail: "The newest snow (about 18", I'd guess past 48hrs) is touchy soft slab. The top 8 inches also exhibit a storm slab-like quality.  There appears to be a very slight density change between the two.  Top 8" fracture and propagate cracks readily on gentle terrain, whereas in steeper terrain, the deeper slab (again, about 18" down) was propagating as I was skinning up the headwall in the steep creek drainages and steeper features nearby. Lots of natural activity on steeper terrain, but vis was limited.

Bridger Range, 2018-11-06

The Bridgers got 30-40” of new snow in the past week. It came in warm and dense, and it is bonding well to the old snow. Natural Avalanches broke 6-8” deep in the new snow today. This instability will heal in a day or two. Wind loaded slopes, where new snow is drifted into fresh thick slabs, will be the most likely place to trigger avalanches the next few days. Photo: GNFAC

From the MSU Backcountry Club Instagram page:

Warning! This is a current, fresh, crown in the northern Bridgers! Every aspect had a visible crown and avi debris! This crown was 56cm at it deepest and over 8 meters long. ECTP21@53 and CT24@54 on the overlying slab. Photo: @msubackcountryclub More Details.

Northern Madison, 2018-11-02

This avalanche was observed on the morning of Friday 11/2. It broke from a natural trigger in the Big Couloir at Big Sky Resort. New snow fell and was drifted into slabs overlying older, hard layers of snow from October. The resort is not open and no people were in the area of the avalanche at that time.

Eric and Alex skinned up to Flanders Mountain in Hyalite to put up the weather station. It was bony, but doable...barely.

Alex and Eric put up the Flanders Mountain weather station in Hyalite today. You can get hourly readings of temp, RH, wind speed and direction HERE.
