Timber Creek Avalanche
page 3
We used an avalanche probe to check the depth of the snow in
the deposition zone.  It was on average at least 10 feet deep.
There was a small pit dug on the edge of the debris field with a
snowboard track leading up to it.  From there we saw two boot
tracks leaving the deposition zone.  We checked with our
avalanche  beacons for a signal other than our own just in case
but we didn't pick up a signal.
After a brief discussion we decided to climb the slide path and
check out the start zone of this slide to see if we could learn
anything about how this slide was triggered.
