Kicked a cornice onto a leeward slope, which caused shooting cracks. Then kicked a larger cornice and the slope propagated 25m across, 25cm deep of 4 Finger- to Fist snow. Presumably ran on recent Surface Hoar. Size 1.5. Ran about 400m including over a cliff band and the debris spread out in the mellow fans. Same slope that carried a guy over the falls last year. Otherwise, slough in the very steep features, no other oƧcurrence of slab over 4 laps. Golden is golden.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Riding quality was amazing.
