Comments: 

Triggered this avalanche in No Name Bowl remotely from the ridge line, the avalanche was in the same location as where I was getting shooting cracks on Sunday. The avalanche broke out about 20 feet away from me after I got a collapse. Crown was about 1.5 feet deep, 125ft wide and ran the full distance of the slope and well out onto flat terrain at the bottom leaving a good sized debris pile. The avalanche failed on facets and sorry to say left all the weak faceted snow on the bed surface, seems like a good candidate to become a repeater.
