Comments
Sledder rode through the bottom, on flat ground.  As soon as the sledder was past the hill, the whole mountain slid, starting at the top.  Large slab slide about 5' deep at the top, all the way to the ground.  Throughout the day, we came across a few of these.  Look like most of them were huge wind blown slopes facing NorthEast.
