Report passed on from another party who observed evidence of a skier triggered slide when they skied Snodgrass mid-morning on Thursday. They did not witness the event. They were in the same general area and saw fresh tracks (though never saw the people) from a party of 2 ahead of them. It snowed 1-2" the night before, so the timing is estimated, but likely occurred Thursday morning.
- BC Zone: Gunnison
- Area Description: Snodgrass First Bowl or "Glory Hole"
- Avalanche Description: Two skier tracks observed entering the crown of an avalanche that was likely triggered Thursday morning. Another party saw the tracks entering the avalanche and prepared for a beacon search. When they got closer, it appeared the first skier triggered an may have been caught in the slide as the track exited from the debris. The second track entered from the crown and was visible on the bed surface and came down to and exited the debris near the first exit track.
