Super Rare Avalanche, North Face of San Jacinto

Super Rare Avalanche on North Face of San Jacinto

đź“· Joyce Schwartz – From Riverside Mountain Rescue Unit Facebook Page

Schwartz said her and a friend were driving west on Interstate 10, making their way to Palm Springs.  As they neared the Highway 111 cutoff near 9 a.m. her friend saw the snow coming off the peak as the avalanche gave way.

Heavy snowfall with the addition of wind on steep slopes over 30 degrees will have a high risk of avalanches.

Please stay away from these areas until the snow has time to settle and the risk decreases.
