We skinned up Buzz ridge with the intention of skiing the north face to avoid the crust and wind slabs. Found more snow on the north face than expected and skier triggered an avalanche. We later noticed evidence of cross-loading into the north face (SE-directed). We adjusted our plan to ski a lower angle slope and stuck to treed or low angle slopes for the rest of the day.
