Sheep Creek - Gully east of Miller Trees

From obs: "Skiers traveling on South facing slope at 9,100ft elevation ascending Miller Trees remote triggered from skin track (second lap) a wind slab on a steeper East facing slope that slid to gully floor and out to Sheep Creek. Westerly wind was blowing with gusts carrying snow to load the east-facing side of the gully. Crown was approximately 4ft at the crest of the gully’s slope. Cracking visible in the photo from skin track traveled up to crown 50yrds away. Pit dug at similar elevation on South facing slope yielded slight cracking within the storm slab but no propagation (ECT16N)." Photo: Anonymous
