A party of 5 headed to Hallway, with plans to descend into Cardiff Fork. The first person did a slope cut, and stopped in a safe spot to the side. The second person started down and after 2 or 3 turns, the avalanche broke out above him. He was able to cut out to the side to a safe spot, and wasn't carried. The other three members of the party were at the top, watching from a safe place. The first two booted back out, and the party left the area.
The slide broke to the ground at the top.
