Riding quality was good.

Incident

Near miss with no injuries or burial. The avalanche was triggered by the 3rd snowboarder in a party of 4. The crown was ~25m above where the boarder triggered the slide. Luckily the boarder managed to stay on top of the flow for approximately 20-30m before stopping. The first two skiers did not trigger or feel reactivity, and all three people followed similar lines. Both Skiers were positioned in the trees to the side of the slide path, and the skier at the top of the run first called / noticed the slide.
