Comments
We traveled to the peak of Gobblers via West Butler Fork and saw another group preparing to drop into the East aspect of Butler Bowl. They intentionally dropped a small cornice which resulted in some initial sloughing, followed by a small slab, which propogated maybe 20 feet laterally near some rocks (left most slide in pictures). One member of the other party then descended ~100feet north and triggered a small slab and skied out without issue (middle slide in pictures). His partner then took a line another ~100 feet noth with similar results (right most slide in pictures). My partner and I skiied a less steep, more South facing aspect without triggery any slabs but with some sloughing (last picture). Spoke with other group at the bottom and they did not have anyone else with their group. All ended well.
