Saying that it’s sensitive out there is an understatement. Many locations’ snowpacks, particularly those with some early season snow followed by prolonged dry periods, are downright scary. This video from the Utah Avalanche Center puts what’s going on out there into perspective. The video starts with a remotely triggered avalanche with a 3′-6′ crown about 1,000′ across. The video then discusses what’s causing these sorts of avalanches. Be safe out there, and thanks to the Utah Avalanche Center for posting this.
