Our tour into the Flathead Range was highlighted by impressive wet avalanche carnage
Viewed from debris pile at valley bottom. Start zone mostly obscured by terrain. Could make out a ~3' crown at about 6000', probably triggered by a wet loose from higher up. Snapped mature trees. Towers of wet debris 20' tall.
Could not see start zone. Either a wet loose or wet slab from N/ATL. Debris pile was a day or two old.
Mix of WL and WS in start zone, breaking on 2/2 crust or down to ground.
Moist loose on E/NE aspects. One triggered a 1' soft dryish slab.
Various slides to the ground in Glacier Park on sunny aspects, mostly starting around 6-6.5k', running full track. Viewed from afar.
New slide off of Stanton, either ran today or yesterday late afternoon. Looks like it probably started as a WL and pulled in some WS.
Estimated from afar. Crown and debris looked fresh.
