Avalanche

Multiple slabs on N/NE aspects at tree line and below tree line. One slab on a SE aspect. All around 1900m. 4 slabs (class 1) were snowmobile triggered and 2 slabs (class 1.5 approx) were natural. Snowmobile triggered appeared to be storm snow on a density interface change with some small surface hoar. Natural appeared to vary in thickness (10-45cm) due to wind loading and drifting, did not assess bed surface or weak layer. Photos do not reflect all avalanches seen today. Snow was deep and fun in wind deposits! Play safe!
