Observer Comments

We arrived at motorized parking lot 10:05am and immediately noticed a new glide release. Talked to several groups that claimed it had slid within the last five minutes. We did not talk to anyone who witnessed the glide in motion. The parking lot was full and noisy due many snow machines.
