Incident

We arrived at Forever Young to find a group of two were about to drop in. Skier 1 entered the chute. Soon after, Skier 2 called up to us that Skier 1 had tumbled. Skier 2 followed after Skier 1. Our group decided to proceed down the chute. When we got to the bottom we found that Skier 1 had been avalanched to the bottom of the chute & buried up to their knees but was thankfully not injured.
