Huge wet slab on Beartooth Pass

This huge avalanche occurred Friday June 4, 2021 near Beartooth Basin ski area, above Twin Lakes on Beartooth Pass. Multiple days of exceptionally warm temperatures followed by rain caused a large cornice to break and trigger the nearly 10' deep wet slab. A reminder to stay diligent with safe travel protocols and snow stability assessments, and minimize time spent below cornices. Photo: A. Hart
