<p>We remotely triggered this avalanche today while looking at a natural avalanche to the far lookers right (north) side of beer hill. &nbsp;Felt the collapse by &quot;the Trigger&quot; and watched it come down. &nbsp;Sorry I could not get my phone into video mode so I clipped together some photos. &nbsp;We triggered this from where the photos were taken maybe 150 yards away. &nbsp;We then watched people ride to the lookers left of the slide with no affect. &nbsp;Spacial variability&nbsp;man!</p>
