Relatively contained area. Friend rode off a knoll and triggered the whole thing to slide immediately just outside of the Schreiber’s meadow play area. He rode off to the side then the whole crack happened, and it was pretty slow moving so he was well out of harms way. But had he gone directly straight and fell he probably would have been buried. 18”-24” crown, 100+ feet wide, maybe 200-250 feet runout, pile below was about 6 feet deep. It was in a populated area and half a dozen people rode up immediately to check in and make sure everything was good.
