It is surprising how much faceted snow there was in this deep profile. The result was perhaps less reactive than I expected with all the collapsing we experienced touring. However, if you did trigger the fracture that propagated in this test, it is a big slap (59 cm) that could step down even lower in the profile. Seems like things will start to stabilize if the weather stays calm, but it might take a some time.
