Comments: 

We remotely triggered this avalanche today while looking at a natural avalanche to the far lookers right (north) side of beer hill.  Felt the collapse by "the Trigger" and watched it come down.  Sorry I could not get my phone into video mode so I clipped together some photos.  We triggered this from where the photos were taken maybe 150 yards away.  We then watched people ride to the lookers left of the slide with no affect.  Spacial variability man!
