Comments
Skinning up west willow ridge line I remotely triggered the entire west willow aera as well as the east slope on the back side of bear trap. I didn't get a good look at it but it appeared to have stepped down. Leaving a mostly snow free slope. I was on the other side of the ridge in trees when I remotely triggered the slide from over 30 feet away.
