Comments
The skier who triggered the slide was the third skier on the slope. The crown is outlined in red and the sluff which ran to the bottom is outlined in yellow. The slab broke below the skier and the skier was able to stop and allow the slab to run down the slope. The skier skied away safely with his heart pumping.
