From an observation, "R3-4 D2 avalanche that failed at the ground observed from the Trail Creek Rd. Looked to be several hundred feet wide, couldn’t see the debris, but crown went through lots of trees." Photo: Chris Cullaz

We skied Wheeler via South Cottonwood and found that the two gullies on the East and South East aspects had recently run in their entirety. We could only see the crown on the South East gully but it appeared to have broke on the steepest part of the slope near the top approximate 3-4ft deep and was the width of the gully. Both avalanches ran the full length and width of their gullies, breaking several trees along the way. The East debris pile was about 25ft deep and the South East was 15ft deep. The East rounded the corner into the ravine at the bottom and also ran about 200ft into the forest. A couple larger trees in the path that were not broken had their branches stripped off the bottom 30ft. Interestingly, the narrow meadow between the South East gully and the South East meadow you recently reported slides on has not slid. Also, we had no propagation or collapsing in our pits.

This picture was taken February 12. On Feb 15 skiers wrote about another avalanche, a large natural on the north face. 3' deep, 300' wide and ran 1,000 feet. Photo: L. Watson

From an observation, "This activity appears to have occurred naturally. No signs of a skin track or skiing. No accurate indication of when it happened, tho appeared fairly recent with no new wind loading." Photo: R. Siberrel

Observed a sizable deep slab in the Divide basin which appeared to have run within the last few days. The crown extended from the southern end of the basin (northeast facing) through the summit run off Divide (southeast facing)--maybe around a mile. Slab height varied, with the upper end pushing 10 feet and the lower closer to a foot or two. On Divide, the crown approached the summit and debris had run across the flat to the mature trees. Looked like it may have been cornice triggered at the southern end on thinner cover in rocky terrain. Also observed a similar slide at the head of the Storm Castle drainage. Pretty wild.
