Comments: 
Multiple slides observed today. We intentionally set off the slide in the race track bowl. When we arrive we observed part had already slid on the one side. We intentionally set off the other side. The middle still has not slid, and there was no way to safely set it off. If someone comes down the middle of it, it will more than likely slide. Crown was estimated 7-8' at one point.
