Observation: Turnagain

Location: Cornbiscuit South Face

Route & General Observations

As we transitioned to ski the west face, a group of two people and two dogs headed further back the ridge to couloir 3. They were back to us pretty quickly and reported remotely triggering an avalanche on the south face. Our next run we checked it out, looks like it was a new snow soft slab and ran on the sun crust.

Super Bowl was also wearing a large crown and debris field, as well as corner pocket.
