Avalanche

Avalanche came down in the mid-afternoon, we suspect it was a cornice failure that triggered a significant amount of loose dry snow to come down over Crowfoot Falls ice climb. It was at least 30 m wide but didn’t seem to trigger an avalanche on the slope below the cliffs from what we could see.
