Can't confirm trigger but Natural is unlikely. I suspect this was remotely triggered by recreational groups in the area or from a cornice failure. 1 photos Sunday January 29th Avalanche Canada, 6 days ago Forecast Regions: Yukon, Tutshi, Wheaton, White Pass East, White Pass West Sunday January 29th Avalanche Canada, 6 days ago Forecast Regions: Yukon, Tutshi, Wheaton, White Pass East, White Pass West Saturday January 28th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Yukon, Tutshi, Wheaton, White Pass East, White Pass West Friday January 27th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Yukon, Tutshi, Wheaton, White Pass East, White Pass West Remote trigger Yukon: White Pass West, 1 week ago Observation First snowmobiler heading to the notch 2 photos Thursday January 26th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Yukon, Tutshi, Wheaton, White Pass East, White Pass West Wednesday January 25th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Yukon, Tutshi, Wheaton, White Pass East, White Pass West Tutshi Yukon: Tutshi, 1 week ago Observation Windy and warm.
