A massive event slide into Heather Canyon. It released on its own early in the morning of March 11th. It is hard to visualize the size of it from the crown, but the fact that it slid to bare ice over a half-mile wide swath gives you an indication of the amount of energy released.
The flow of powder and rock hard snow chunks slid right past Heather Canyon Lift.
The tongue of the avalanche went into the narrows filling the valley with at least 30 feet of snow.
When compared to a human the slide could be mistaken for a glacier.
