Avalanche Activity- Cooke City Area

Displaying 1 - 5
  • Snowmobilers around Cooke City observed numerous natural and human triggered avalanches in the days following a significant storm system. 24" of new snow fell over two days with strong wind from the west. With the existence of persistent weak layers, new snow, and wind we expect to see continued avalanche activity. Photo: Joe Sledneck

  • We hiked in to put up the Flanders weather station on 9/25 and found a spotty distribution of 4-6" of snow above 8,000'. Photo: GNFAC

  • Last weekend (9/23) there was about 14 inches of snow at 9,000'. Sun and warm temperatures created wet snow avalanches on slopes that face the sun. These small slides can be hazardous if they push you into the wrong terrain. Photo: Z. Drobnik
