Avalanche: Dutch Draw
Snow profile from Moon Rocks, north of Dutch Draw in Red Pine Canyon
Snowpack has adjusted to load placed on it, but still able to trigger an avalanche. These are low likelihood, high consequence events. Skiing on 30-32 degrees was stellar today, possibly the best day I've had in the last 5 years.
Forecaster's note: The larger Dutch Draw slide in the photo below happened very late afternoon or overnight on the 25th. Trigger unknown. (Smaller slide is a few days older.) This photo was taken several hours before there was another skier triggered slide in Dutch Draw on the afternoon of the 26th.
