Comments

I unintentionally triggered this unmanageable slide today on this steep NE facing slope that is in sheltered terrain.  The snow pack is about as deep as it gets here.  Again, the slide ran on facets below the crust that formed on the 27th of January.  So in the last 4 days that's three slides I've triggered.  All around 10K but on various aspects (NW, E, NE).  The common theme is high and on the north half of the compass.
