This evening we received footage from the backcountry near Stowe, Vermont, where a sizable avalanche was triggered this afternoon. The footage was from John Strafford who said:

“Lots of red flags out there today, crazy how things changed overnight, just goes to show you, high precipitation rates will change things fast. We heard this whole area settle and crack and we were in a safe spot to watch it go. We went down to the bottom and checked for tracks in and didn’t see any but pretty scary none the less!”

Backcountry skiers in Vermont should use extreme caution on any terrain with slide potential. Mt. Mansfield has received a total of 42 inches of snow in the past week and a season total of 258 inches. Winds up to 40 mph will be in paly. At the resort all 11 lifts and 114 trails across 530 acres are open, featuring exceptional powder and groomed conditions.
