    Stuck up hi-res pictures of the Joffre Slide here in a timeline. When I get some more aerial pictures from Maximus I'll update

    Thx Lee! we appreciate it! Very interesting to see all the images in one place. Central looks like it might just still go, but the risks are high.

    After the first Joffre slide. Before and after.

    Pic 1 - rock avalanche trimline extends upwards into trees of Pascall's S face and deep down valley. Pic by MOT technicians.

    Pic 2 - Feb 2013 Sharon on her little birthday ski gutting the pow of Joffre's North glacier with vantage point showing the area that will be in the kill zone of the 2019 slide

    It may go all the way to the FSR but it will be big boulders with random trees so will need some amount of snow coverage

    Not sure about cubic meters, but it was approximately 2.5 million ranges.

    This was in LeeLau's article: Per Drew – “ the failure area was about 25,000 – 30,000 m˛, based on a failure geometry of a block approximately 200 m high and 150 m wide. The runout distance was about 4.2 km. “

    Hey, thanks for putting this together. I was about to link Brayshaw's mspaint from twitter on here before I saw you included it. That said here's a different tweet anyway because he's probably a guy worth following - hopefully he'll have more to say on it - and more specifically because I'm waaay out of my depth and I wish I knew more what he meant by this: https://twitter.com/DrewBrayshaw/sta...66185549344768

    Drew meant that last explanation re "dipping joints" in an analogy to road cuts and slumping culverts extending to adjoining masses iirc.
