<p>I triggered this from the shoulder while skinning back up.&nbsp; This is a very small rollover at mid-altitude on a north facing aspect.&nbsp; Snow pack is generally 115 cm in the area with 12&quot;of new&nbsp;light density snow.&nbsp; As has been the case, this ran at the rime crust layer that formed 5 weeks ago&nbsp;in late January.</p>
