Incident

Secondary report of a Sz 2 skier triggered avalanche at treeline from a feature called the 'Christmas Trees', on Parkers Ridge. Moderate SW winds and constant fetch from Parkers Reef (see photo: flat rocky terrain above the slide) feed this small-ish looking terrain feature which tracks dangerously through the trees at the bottom.
