Record Ridge avalanche observed from Rossland (about 6km). Large crown visible in the area known as the Field Of Dreams. Suspect size 3 based on the fracture and the width (estimate close to a km). Guessing that it slid on the Dec 08/13 crust complex during the end of the storm cycle overnight.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow. 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours. Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
