Clear skies this morning offered excellent views of the terrain in JFS Canyon. A large avalanche path above the rail on the south face of Running Rabbit Mtn produced at least a couple Destructive Size 2 avalanches during the storm. One likely ran last night and the other earlier in the storm. More details under the avalanche tab. No other avalanche activity observed.
Road obs from highway 2
Only a partially filled in crown visible this morning, but it's a good bet it ran at least to a bench at 4600' that often catches debris in this path. Best estimate is this ran early in the storm when westerly winds would have been loading this SE aspect.
Best estimate is that this avalanche ran early this morning (photos). This is more of SW aspect and was loaded yesterday when the winds were from the NE. Debris ran about 3/4 path.
