Comments
Watched the slide happen, it started at a cliff band at the top of the ridge, far skiers left part of West Monitor. On schedule at 1245 as the slope heated up. Got wider as it ran and it ran several hundred feet. People skied a slightly different aspect on skiers right of West Monitor (East or East/NE) with no problems before and after the slide.
