Comments
In case no one submits photos, another glide on Blue Ice.
 
Observed it from the Gobblers/Mill A Basin ridge about 4:30pm Saturday April 13.  Pretty sure it came down Saturday as the rock face/bed surface had no snow on it suggesting it came down after the Friday/Saturday storm.
 
Block of snow 100 feet by 100 feet glided of the steep shear rock face on the north end above the run and ran to the flat, with debris fanning out about 200 feet.  Vertical distance was probably about 1000 feet.
