To 9100′ in the central Bitterroots
beautiful day for picnicking, if not for skiing
light and variable
New Snow: No New Snow
We spotted the two avalanches shown in the photo on a south aspect at about 8000′. The crown outlined on the right appeared to be a wide wet slab avalanche that probably ran during the very warm weather on March 2 or March 3. Note the dirty debris in the gully below, suggesting a deep avalanche failing near the ground.
The crown on the left, shown by the arrow, appeared to be older, with new snow on it, and probably was a dry slab that ran during the last storm. It, too, ran far down the gully.
