2 of our group of 3 partially buried. Storm slab between 20-40 cm deep ran on the buried surface hoar layer. Hard to say exactly how far it propagated but somewhere between 30-40 metres. Was triggered by skiers on the slope. We’d skied all day and got complacent with our spacing in the trees. Fortunately we all skied away from it.
