Comments: 

This slide on Cardiac Ridge looks to have occurred early this morning or last night it looked fairly fresh this morning. Appeared to be a wind-slab that was formed by the winds in the last 24 hours. I'm assuming it was a wind-slab because I triggered numerable ones today the largest being on LSB. It was new snow only and petered out after 300 to 400ft vertical.
