Zone or Region:
Soldier and Wood River Valley Mtns
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes
Size 3: Could bury and destroy a car, damage a truck, destroy a wood frame house, or break a few trees
We saw evidence of an older (probably last week) avalanche. We could not get eyes on the start zone but it ran for over 1,000 feet and made a sweeping turn into the valley bottom and kept going.
The snow was winter up top and spring down low. We skied a south aspect and off of the top it was a breakable crust and lower down it was corn.
