 Comments: On January 16th, an experienced snowmobiler was caught, carried, and partially buried in an avalanche near Dollarhide Mountain. He triggered a 100’ wide, 12-16” thick slab avalanche on a west-facing slope near 8600’ elevation. The slide released about 100’ above him while he was riding on a road. The avalanche carried the rider an estimated 100’ through treed terrain. Fortunately, he was uninjured.
