Comments: 
3rd deep slab, break-to-the-ground avalanche we saw today. Cougar Peak, Northeast bowl between the west and middle summits. We viewed from the west ridge of Cherry Peak. Likely cornice triggered. This one I can say definitely slid within the past week as I skied the same Cougar slope last Sunday and there was no slide.
