Remembering the Historic Valentine Avalanche that Created a 30-Foot Wall of Snow on Mt. Shasta

On February 13, 2019, a giant avalanche slammed Mount Shasta, which has been come to be known as the Valentine Avalanche. Although it wasn’t seen or heard, a 30-foot wall of debris sitting around 7,200 feet on the mountain told a story of a historic avalanche.

It was in the middle of what has become to be known #FebruBURIED in 2019, where a historic amount of snow fell all over Northern California, breaking numerous snowfall records at ski resorts in the Sierra Nevada. The snowfall was so heavy during this time, that luckily no one was on Mt. Shasta when the massive avalanche was triggered.

The event was only discovered after the guys at Shasta Mountain Guides hiked up to Avalanche Gulch in the days following Valentine’s Day to find an interesting scene. A 30-foot wall of snow that ran several miles down the mountain was incredible evidence of a D4 event, just one notch away from the largest possible avalanche.

In the days following the event, photos of the avalanche’s aftermath began to surface online and it showed the 30-foot wall of snow going all the way down the mountain:

There were also some great photos taken by Dawn Patrol Images:

The historic event shows the power of nature and the danger posed to any outdoor adventure on the mountain.

  23. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  24. What you posted made a great deal of sense. But, think
    on this, suppose you were to write a killer post title?
    I ain’t saying your information is not solid., but what if you added a title that makes
    people want more? I mean Remembering the Historic Valentine Avalanche that Created a 30-Foot Wall of Snow on Mt.
    Shasta – Active NorCal is kinda vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to get people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.

  25. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    say that I have really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts.

    After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I
    hope you write again soon!

  27. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the
    nail on the head. The problem is something which too
    few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that
    I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  28. Hey there! I’ve been reading your website for a long time now and finally
    got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Atascocita Tx!

    Just wanted to tell you keep up the great job!

    off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to
    do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you
    get the issue resolved soon. Kudos
