Avalanche: Douglas Island

Location: Eaglecrest

Route & General Observations

In-bounds ski patrol control work results with explosives and ski cuts created 12 to 3 in crown depths that had sympathetic avalanches on adjacent slopes on all North, West, and East aspects. New snow from last night (2/14) was easy to trigger may have stepped down into snow from Monday and Tuesday. Just wanted to let folks know that West and East Bowls have not been controlled yet, and are very likely to have skier or rider triggered avalanches.
