Default Shuksan. Went. HUGE.

NWAC is reporting a VERY large avy on the Shuksan Arm today at Baker. Filled Rumble Gully and spilled over in-bounds near the bottom of chair 8. Baker is obviously closed for the rest of the day. Baker's Gm said its the biggest he's seen in 40 years.....

^^Yeah, it was a rain/snow mix at the base around noon, but it sounds like it has gotten colder since. I can't believe it slid all the way through Rumble Gully to the bottom of 8. Gotta be a huge crown up there in the clouds.

That damn thing seems to go big almost yearly. With 110", it went really BIG. Glad no one was caught. I'm sure it popped a lot of eyes. Seems like these things do this every so often, just to remind us how little we really are.
