I think that's what they call a metric fuckton. Might try to head up there this weekend and see the aftermath for myself.

"Anyone have gopro footage of it?" - Said in best bro brah voice.

The crown from that photo looks HUGE! That is a scary slide for sure. At least someone is getting snow.

Yeah sorry. I got it from here > HUGE Avalanche CLOSES Mt. Baker Ski Resort | 110 Inches of Snow in 6 Days @ Mt. Baker, WA | Ski Resort CLOSED Yesterday for Downed Trees

And they've since removed that photo from the page. Must have been some confusion with whoever put the page together. So... this years one must be even bigger. Sweet jeebus

I'm not surprised we been gettin hit everyday. Last year the debris pile was over 100' deep and the crown/fracture was at least 10'+. Just glad it went when it was closed. Just checked the baker site and the base is at 308 inches and in the record year the base was 339".

Geez, Grant's picture from last year is really making the rounds. It's everywhere! People keep posting it on FB saying it's yesterday's slide.

Anyway, the rumored crown is over 15 feet, but no pics yet.

Kids were up there today and noted the vis was too poor to see the crown but they figure maybe some breaks late in the day or tomorrow for some pics.

It came right up the the edge of the groomer at the bottom of 8. They roped off the last big left turn at the bottom where you run up to the chair. Where you come back inbounds from the arm there are no trees left standing and its filled in with the debris pile.
