Comments
Headed up to red pine to ski red pine trees and decided to head up to lower red pine lake before taking a lap in red pine trees. Lots of collapsing occurring during skin. On the ski back to the upper bridge spotted what appears to have been a small natural avalanche. Likely occurs during the storm. Broke to the ground in some places but not all. Avoided steep terrain and stayed in mellow safe terrain...
