Notes

From e-mail: "[A solo skier] was turning around [on the face of Crazy Peak] after noticing the wind was affecting the snow when he got hit from above and partially buried, losing some belongings. He was able to dig himself out and was uninjured... He said he thought the slide broke 200 feet wide, and ran from the middle of the face to the bowl."
