6-8" deep storm slab triggered on steeper slope above us by undercutting on skin track. Southern aspect near the top of the creek drainage above Bagley Lake. 80-100 feet wide, ran for about 100 feet at longest point
Signs of Unstable Snow
Triggered a 6-8" deep storm slab around 80-100 feet wide that ran for about 100 feet. It was a steeper slope above skin track that slid, track must have undercut the unstable slope. One skier carried about 5 feet downslope. Trailing snowboarder caught closer to center of slide and caught and carried about 15-20 feet downhill, rolling and falling in the process. Luckily they remained at the surface. Storm slab fractured at a convex rollover about 30 feet above skin track.
Observed Avalanche Problem #1:
10-14" new storm snow atop a firmer crust on southern aspects. Sections starting to form into stiffer wind slab in exposed locations.
