Cooke City, recent avalanche photos
Some photos of recent natural avalanche activity near Cooke City attached. We observed about 10 slab avalanches today that ran during this cycle.
All of the avalanches I observed appeared to involve just the new snow. The east wind of Jan. 28th also appears to have played a significant role, with many of the slides occuring on westerly aspects.
The recent wind drifts were still sensitive today. Lots of cracking. And I was able to intentionally trigger a small storm slab today (20' wide, 1' deep) by kicking a small cornice.
No collapsing experienced the last 3 days while trail breaking.--
