Route & General Observations

Snowboarding was great. Nice soft blower pow. Snow failed when I dropped into the ravine. Seemed to be wind loaded and failed when I dropped the windlip and landed on a thin spot. Snowboarded out of the way no one caught or buried.
Also had another slide happen on our way out. Similar scenario and same aspect and slope, loaded ravine that looked to be a wind slab that stepped down to the ground. No one caught or buried.
