Comments: 

Rider on the slope triggered the slide which broke behind him and he was clear of the slab.  Another rider below the slope got dusted but was not caught.  The slope was short due to a bench just below it.

Local riders believe this slope may have avalanched in December. It is a usual suspect and avalanches frequently.
