Photos From The Field | Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center

Avalanche danger in and around Gallatin County is no joke. Even dogs can trigger slides, as seen in this photo from The Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center.

This wind slab avalanche was triggered by a dog south of Bozeman. “Luckily he has good reflexes and was able to jump out of the slab as it started to move because he wasn’t wearing his dogalung at the time.” While this snowpack in this photo is different from the one in the mountains, this avalanche is a good indication of the sensitivity of recently formed wind slabs.

If you’re active in the backcountry, make sure you always keep conditions with the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center. Those guys are incredibly knowledgeable and are constantly in the field checking conditions. -Michelle
