Avalanche

Skier accidental in photo. White out conditions prevented me from seeing the convex roll and subsequently triggered a size 1. Skins were still on. On the way out to hanging lake we triggered 3 more size 1's. All were triggered on convex features but did not run further due to steepness of terrain.
