Observation – 3/13/2014 – southern Whitefish Range

These avalanches 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).
