Very large (guessing Relative scale 4 Destructive scale 3) avalanche came down the Sunshine path (where the Mt Juneau trail zigzags the alpine).

The main slide area over the east end of the flume released three times within about 15 minutes, the last around 12:40pm. The smaller creek to the west of the main slide (the one that covers the flume with rocks during floods) also had a small slide come down.  [ Read More ]
