Incident

First skier dropped and after a few turns pulled off to the left because the snow was slabby and not soft. At that point he saw cracking and a size ~2 remotely triggered. Crown was approx 100ft across and 50cm at the deepest point. Ran to the bottom of the slope, so ~200m. Cracking continued skiers right, below skier, (see pic), but didnt slide. Pic 3: red indicates ski line and X is where we assume trigger happened (thin spot over some rocks, remote trigger to convexity nearby). Everyones safe.
