Notes

A skier triggered this slide around two o'clock in Bradley's Meadow on 1/26. From e-mail: "The snow propagated when I made my first turn on a convex roll above the slope skiers right of the main meadow, just before the flat area before going up The Ramp. The slab broke right under my feet and propagated 20-25 feet on either side of me. The crown was 7" deep where I triggered it but some spots of it were as deep as 13". My friends and I decided that the slide was R3 and D1-D2. Luckily I was able to ski out of the slide right when it propagated so no one was caught in it."
