Comments
Observed looking west from the ridge above George's Bowl. Natural slide, appears to be triggered by storm snow and or wind loading. Initial slide triggered a deeper, persistent slab. Appears to have slid to fairly close to ground level in places. Length and width of slide observed are estimates, as it was difficult to assess this from the opposing ridge.
