black and white photo of a snow covered saddle peak showing an avalanche

Saddle Peak

Posted on | Shot on at 17:00:00

Saddle Peak in the Bridger range north of Bozeman, Montana as seen looking south from the north end of Bridger Bowl. The dark line across the top of the ridge is where a massive avalanche cut loose earlier in the week. Supposedly the height variation at that point is eight feet between where the avalanche went and the snow above it.

  • wow this is so dramatic – all of it – not just the avalanche but also the sky and the lines of mountain. really nice to see this (without the slog up there).
