Comments
Sorry for late entry. Busy. Walking the ridge along silver fork headwall 25th around 10am trying not to get blown away. Stepping very 'heavy' along edge to see if anything would break loose and was not disappointed. Ran to just above flats but DID NOT step down or really entrain much new snow. This is the second wind slab I have seen break loose in the area that did not step down.
