Comments
We came across this slide just below the ridge on George's Bowl. Suspect it was skier triggered because of tracks leading into it. Although we did not inspect the bed surface directly it appeared to be the new storm snow sliding at or just below old snow crust. Wind loading may have also contributed given the proximity to the ridge line.  Slide is on a east northeast facing slope. A bit to the south of Georges Bowl.
