We observed a skier drop into what I think was Roman's Couloir today. The skier was standing on a very large cornice looking down the couloir, the cornice broke and sent him for a ride down the chute. This observation is mostly to say the skier rode out the slide and is ok, you will notice a pole at the top of the chute, I was not able to safely retrieve the pole. Just know the skier was ok and no one is buried in the debris pile.
