Began the hike around 11 AM. There was lots of snow in the parking lot and on the trail from the beginning. The first mile our group wore micro spikes and the second mile snowshoes. At the 2 mile mark it became hard to find the trail and there was an opening into a snowfield with few trees. As our group decided to turn back we witness another hiker and their large dog taken down mountain by an avalanche. Fortunately it was a small one and the dog barked enough for our party to find the half buried hiker and dog. Everyone was OK, though a bit banged up. To reiterate the WTA’s warning on this hike, beware of avalanches and snow conditions. Stay safe everyone.
