Comments
We (two of us) ascended and descended off the summit ridge well away from the small cornice edge. The second skier down most likley triggered this event, even though he was 100 yds away from the trigger point when it slid. It did so just as he finished his descent into the low angle “bowl” to the northeast. I barely missed getting a video of it.
