Ash Creek Crater Avalanche
A slab avalanche occurred naturally off the N/NW facing aspect of Ash Creek Butte (Ash Creek Crater). The slide broke several 4 inch round trees in its path. A definite weak layer existed 18 inches from the snow surface.
The weather was mostly clear with low clouds. A light rain/mist was observed in the early AM hours, but cleared up during the day. Winds were calm.
