Comments: 

had to take skis off coming over little peak, SW fetch blown to rocks, small wind pocket released naturally on NE slope, only 30' wide, ran to firs/trees 50', crown average 3', small pocket, but I would not like to take even that ride and get slammed into trees at bottom by refrigerators, blocks remained together, so other than crushing you, unknown if it could bury you
