Abstract: The avalanche of February 13, 1979, that destroyed a bridge on U.S. Highway 2 in Montana is described; then, the avalanches of February 15 and 20, 1982, that threatened the new bridge at this site are discussed. These demonstrate the erratic flow pattern of wet avalanches and the cumulative effect of a series of avalanches down the same path.
