I triggered this slab avalanche while my partner Craig Gordon spotted me from a safe location on the ridge. This avalanche failed to weak old snow near the ground (faceted snow), it was 3.5ft deep, 150ft wide. The western Uinta Mountains has a unstable snowpack for the time being. This avalanche problem doesn't look to be going anywhere soon.
