Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.

Snowpack

Had mixed results with our ECT and CT test results, however our Propagation Saw Test revealed full propagation, 40cm/ 100cm END on the Nov 27 CR down 100cm.

Incident

While we were doing our full snow profile, a group triggered a slide in an area relative to where we were digging. They entered the slope and heard a whumph, followed by a crack and triggered a size one slide. The area they entered, above was steep and rocky with a shallow snowpack. No involvement.
