Route & General Observations
Normal skin track up Tincan. Skied from top near ski track. Photos show 3 remote triggered avalanches. Triggered remotely from second skier down. Later in day other skiers/boarders skied to lookers left of left most slide and between left and middle slide. Whummping observes while we were headed down (on a flatter area) near skin track near top of trees. Hand pits not very reactive but clearly much of the other area was.
