Cosmic messenger bowl

James Walter

Weather conditions were: Stormy.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours. Slab avalanches today or yesterday.


Several size 1 loose/slab avalanches (loose dry triggering wind slab) observed, running approximately 400m. One size 2.5 avalanche avalanche observed, unable to see the start zone but suspect it initiated high above Cosmic Messenger. Debris ran well into BTL, 1000m length is estimated from Cosmic Messenger ice climb to the toe of the debris. Avalanches are running far and fast.
