Natural Avalanche on Mt. Abundance

In Cooke City a large storm dropped 4.5" of snow water equivalent (4 feet of snow) and there were a few avalanches reported during and immediately after the storm. We saw one large avalanche on a south facing slope on Meridian, and a smaller wind-loaded slope that avalanched on Mt. Abundance (photo). We saw no other activity. Our concern is the interface between the old snow and new snow. The avalanche activity seemed to break here and on slopes with a wind-load it's worth being extra careful.

Meridian: R2, D2.5
