Skied north into East Bowl from Davenport and then South toward Michigan City and Grizzly Gulch. Skier triggered sluff of new snow into East Bowl near yesterday’s cornice drop.  Prior group triggered wet slide skiing down into Michigan City.  Skier caught and carried short distance as we dropped into Grizzly Gulch in late afternoon.  Slide was only a few feet deep, and skier remained on top.  (Deployed BD airbag but would have been ok without).
