This photo was taken by a FS snow ranger on Feb 1st. These avalanches likely occurred towards the end of a period of steady snowfall from Jan 16th to 28th. From e-mail: "The Reas Peak area had 7 slides that I could see from the bottom of the drainage, most of them looked to have occurred with the last storm and had a northerly influence to their aspect. The largest and most recent slide I included in the [above photo], Reas Peak is the highest peak on the left in the photo and the slide path is on a NE aspect. If you look close at the photo you can see a 2-3’ crown on the far left side of the frame on the north aspect of Reas from another slide." Photo: C. Hericks

There's a new avalanche sign next to the beacon checker on the road out of Cooke City. Snowmobilers and skiers will pass it on their way to Lulu and Daisy Pass. It has the daily avalanche danger and a map showing the location of all the avalanche fatalities. This sign was a team effort between the GNFAC, the Friends of the Avalanche Center, and Montana State Parks (FWP). A big thanks goes out to Seth McArthur of FWP who made the sign. Photo: L. DeMarcus
