Avalanche

This was a surprise to find this nasty avalanche in the gullies, half way down the Tumbling run. Looks like someone skier triggered it within the last 48-hrs. Also looked like a nasty ride over rocks, stumps and dirt. Very shallow snowpack area here, only about 50 cm deep and 100 m left it was 130 cm. Beware the sudden shallow areas.
