We noticed some small fractures and cracks on our approach and decided to ski in less steep terrain. I dropped in and the the avalanche occurred 3-4 turns in from the ridge top. The slope broke off to my left at my ski tips. It pushed me over some rocks before I was able to stop above a tree and let the rest of the slide pass by.
