Route & General Observations

Skied a couple north facing coolies on the Ramp. Widespread, large, and loud point releases on anything that the sun touched. Fast and high volume sloughing. One line slid with the first skier. Slab broke at skier’s feet about 300 vertical feet into line, went basically wall to wall (~50 ft), ran 750 vertical feet, 12-18 inches deep, firm bed surface, confined to recent storm snow.
