Comments
Ski cut at the top of the peak created a slab avalanche of new snow that did not bond to new snow surface that ran the entire length of Machetes and ran past the bottom of the bowl. While skiing ridge back to DV, caused a sympathetic release in Puma Bowl with same results. Decided better idea to go home and watch T. Woods.
