Remotely triggered 3 very large avalanches

CBACCBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 03/25/2023

Zone: Northwest Mountains
Route Description: Anthracite Range. NW Mountains.

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: We remote triggered at least 3 very large avalanches on southeast to south-facing terrain above the Beaver Ponds. We were choosing to ski northerly-facing terrain, but while skiing down the ridge to a second lap on the back of the ridge, we felt a collapse, and watched three very large (D3) avalanches run to near their vegetative trim lines.

Weather: Cold, mostly cloudy, breezy. We did not see much snow transport during the day, but it looked like snow drifted overnight.
