Welcome to the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center, a comprehensive source for information and data regarding avalanche advisories, avalanche
events, weather, and snow data for the Bridger-Teton National Forest.
The WYDOT used a GAzEx exploder to trigger an avalanche this morning in the Twin Slides avalanche path on Mt Glory that put some avalanche debris on the roadway.
Damage from the Taco Bell slide. The slide swept ice from Flat Creek and avalanche debris into this truck. Photo provided by Augus Thuermer.
Avalanche hits vehicle south of Jackson
A soft slab avalanche ran to the highway south of Jackson at about 12:30 and hit a vehicle. No one was injured. It released from a gully south of the Milepost 151 slide path. Listed as a natural release. Could have been triggered by an animal.
Posted @withrepost • @avyinstitute When we do an ECT, we are looking to see if we can initiate a failure in the weak layer and if that failure propagates across the entire 90 cm wide column. Propagation is a red flag result.⠀
