Utah Avalanche Center
ECTX, but a snappy, clean breaks when putting shovel behind block on graupel layers @ 68 and 80 cm down.
Snowmobile triggered but not reported. Many sled tracks buried and partially buried by debris from this avalanche. Tracks entering crown from center top and west flank.
Deep snowpack for elevation less then 7000'
ECT broke and propagated at about 90 cm after 35 taps.
Significant cornice and wind drift growth in the past week. Snow has become quite deep in lee terrain
Deep areas in humpy have good stability. All of our explosive work was only prying out freshly formed wind slabs and nothing stepped down. There is uncertainty as to what has slid in humpy (repeaters). The structure is poor with fist depth hoar at the ground. We did not find anything shallower than 180cm where we travelled, but we did not check every chute. Where the snowpack is shallow (repeaters) you could very likely pull out a large avalanche.
