That's a whole lot of action in a couple days. Seems like the slc culture breeds powder fever.
Dug a couple ect 0 pits on Friday, block popped out before I finished cutting the back. Built a little jib and had some safe fun. building jumps is great shovel practice, gives you a lot of time in the snow looking at layers.
We had a similar shit show over the same period. Unfortunately someone died by Silverton. Search and Rescue was called out 3 times at Berthoud. Over 100 avalanches reported in Colorado over that period.
It definately seems like a powder fever type of thing. A pretty dry january folowed by a weeks worth of fresh-albeit upside down snow. BCC was overflowing with cars this last weekend when the danger was still considerable. Im sure LCC was just a packed. I read somehere that there were at least 5 people caught in CO in the last few days. I myself got some great turns in a 25 degree south-facing bowl.
