Comments
<p>Based on tracks it looks like this was a remotely&nbsp;triggered slide from a snowmobile just off the lower portion of the right flank of the slide. Near the Sled track the slab was much thinner than above, perhaps 18&quot;. The crown depth looks like it is 1&#39;-6&#39; deep. I&#39;m sure this even got someones attention! It looks like the event is at least a couple days old.</p>
