Avalanche

A skier on the adjacent slope to the run “hog’s heaven” remote triggered an avalanche that propagated widely in the basal layer and ran full path. No involvements. This was a large avalanche that ran across skin tacks low on the slope. About 30 minutes earlier, our group remote triggered another size 2 avalanche below tree line, maybe 100 or more meters to the climbers right if our skin track. It wasn’t visible from our location, but we noted a large “woomph.” Pic 1: the big avalanche Pic 2: bottom of the runout zone Pic 3: the smaller remote triggered avalanche
