The morning forecast from the central Wasatch indicates the Park City ridgeline can produce some whoppers from the most recent onslaught of wind and snow.
"I was able to trigger a large slide along the Hidden Canyon/10,420’ ridgeline in upper BCC that was up to 1000’ wide, stepping down 5½’ deep to the November facets. It was a heavily loaded north-facing slope at 9600’. You should be able to find some good firewood from the downed trees up there in the summer." _________________
All the cagey avalanche folks I know, me included, have sworn off slopes steeper than about 33° for the rest of the season.
Caught the news on TV last night.
One snowmobiler interviewed said he lost his brother on the same mountain some years back.
Another snowmobiler described the riding going on. Apparently they were dropping a cornice with their sleds. The guy caught was not the first one to drop it.
Be careful out there folks. Seems like most of the west is going to have some sketch conditions with the snow and the WINDS that this storm is bringing.
