On 3/1/23 at 11am we saw a very large avalanche crown on the east side on Henderson Mtn., in the big avalanche path off the highest summit. It likely occurred late yesterday or early this morning. There was minimal new or drifted snow covering it, and it was snowing and blowing yesterday all day.
I estimate the crown is 6-8 feet deep, possibly 10 feet in spots. Measured on GoogleEarth to be 700 feet wide. 1200 feet vertical. HS-N-R3-D3-O. It did not go to the ground. Given how much wind-loading this path gets it may have been near the interface the 6 feet of snow that fell over the last 7-10 days, but it easily could have broken on a variety of faceted layers deeper in the snowpack.
Today wind was very calm and skies were partly cloudy. We saw a few shots of blue sky mixed with a few snow showers that totaled maybe 2-3cm.
