Comments
Small Natural wet slides were releasing in the steeper portions of the shoots today. While observing a skier drop in on a more east facing shoot around 11:30 the skier took a hard tumble and a wet slide released after him traveling at least 400 ft. The skier was able to move away from the wet slide and other skiers eventually made there way down. Daytime warming especially in steep and rocky terrain make perfect wet slide conditions.
