Comments
Just witnessed Primrose cirque slide. Unknown what triggered it but looked like natural trigger.   Forecaster update:  This slide was most likely remotely triggered from above by a skier on the ridge line.  (the video)
 
the first photo below, of the crown of the Primrose Cirque slide, is an older slide that released earlier this week, probably Wednesday, Feb 6.
