Toured up the Asulkan today and caught a view of these two avalanches when the clouds parted a bit. Depth looked in-line with early Feb melt-freeze crust. Feature wide propagation was what caught our eye. Hard to tell size exactly from our obscured view but in the sz2 range. Date unknown but based on recent HN throughout the area, and the visual look of the avalanche, estimate within last 48hrs
