Skier triggered wind slab on Republic Mtn.

A skier triggered and was partially buried in this avalanche on Republic Mountain on Saturday 3/10. From e-mail:

"[This avalanche] popped off early in the morning (7 am) and partially buried my partner. He broke it skinning after me over a 35-40° rollover. The slide was 1-2’ deep, 250’ wide, and ran 200’ into some dense trees. It broke as a very dense wind slab that broke on another dense slab. The second avalanche we noted was while I was skiing down town hill at the end of the day (1 pm). This avi was very similar, 1-1.5’ deep, 150’ wide, and ran 500’. No one was caught in [the second] avalanche. Pretty touchy conditions out there today..."
