Zone or Region:
Christmas Tree Bowl
Did you trigger any avalanches? Yes
Was it intentional? No
Size 1: Relatively harmless to people
Triggered several small slabs about 6’ in width and slid up to 10-12ft. We were in the more spaced out trees.
Doing the common tour up Christmas tree bowl, we got started a little late but we’re up there a little after noon or 1 o clock. There were some other skiers out before us and we didn’t see activity on the way up. But several times as we descended we triggered small slabs to release. One caught me and slid me a few feet and I was buried up to my knees.
