Route & General Observations

Headed normal skin track. Skied in the trees – west and north-west side. Climbed back out and skied back to car near skin track. At the bottom of a run, we noticed an avalanche above us on a north aspect – it was still moving. After we climbed back out and traversed back towards normal skin track, we noticed a new, large avalanche. And new ski tracks from the top of CFR. These skiers may have triggered both of these avalanches.
