CB Avalanche Center2014-15 Observations

Name: Dodson Harper
Title: Schuykill Ridge
Date of Observation: 12/14/2014
Aspect: North East, East
Elevation: 11,000′

Avalanches: Human triggered soft snow avalanche on the nose of November Bowl. Approximately 75′ wide and ran 400′. On the upper part of the run, it stepped down to the ground carrying all faceted snow with it. The slide was large enought to knock one skier down, but they were not buried (and no injuries). We saw small sluffs from skiing all day but only this one ran very far.
