Comments
SS-ASr/c-D1-R2.5 9,500' ENE. Intentional remote trigger of new, very soft, wind slab. Ran far and fast for the size of slope. Happened in the small bowl heading up to pole line pass. Greater than about 35* slope needed to move, cracked and arrested in areas where slope was less than about 35*. Poor picture below .
