Skiers in Hyalite saw a natural wet slab near Blackmore Lake. From the email: "The slide was located around 300 yards South of Blackmore Lake on a West facing slope at an elevation just above 7400 feet.  It broke below a cliff band about 3' deep (to the ground) and ran a few hundred feet (almost to the skin track)."

Skiers triggered this wet slab avalanche on Saturday afternoon (3/23). Warm sunny days have weakened the snowpack and made wet avalanches possible. Photo: G. Egnew

This wet slab was observed on Friday (3/22) across the Sourdough canyon trail, about 1.4 miles up. It put 4-6 feet of debris lower down in the creek. Although small, a heavy wet slide like this can be powerful and very dangerous. Current warm temperatures are a shock to the snowpack, and steep slopes should be avoided if the snow is wet. Photo: P.

Southern Madison, 2019-03-22

A snowbiker was partially buried in a slide on the west side of Sage Peak in the southern Madison Range. The slide occurred on a southwest facing slope at 8,700 ft. and failed on weak snow near the ground. The wet slab avalanche was triggered as the biker was side-hilling across the slope. He was caught, carried and buried to his chest, but fortunately escaped unharmed. Photo: D. Talbert

Two wet slabs that looked to have released during the past 48 hours. The smaller slide on the left had a debris pile that was 6' deep. The larger slide on the right failed at the ground and took most of the snow in the chute with it. The large slide may have been triggered from smaller loose wet slide that was set off by a skier.
