This is an adjacent avalanche to an avalanche that occurred in the main Chicken Bones slope that likely occurred on Sunday (3/9/2014). They were observed and reported to us on Thursday, and FAC staff investigated the crown in Chicken Bones and determined it did not occur Thursday. Snow on the debris and bed surface indicate it occurred prior to the last snowfall which was Monday (3/10/2014). The crown depth was about 110 to 170 cm (43 - 70 inches). This avalanche was the larger of the 2 and appeared to be at least 1/4 mile wide. 3/14/2014.
