Avalanche Details

The right-most of the glide cracks shown on Cornbiscuit in the 1/31/16 advisory slid sometime recently. I was there today and didn't witness the slide, so can't say exactly when it happened, but based on conversations with other skiers I suspect it may have happened in the last 24 hours. Don't know when the pic posted on the advisory was taken, but it definitely slid since then. We skied under the debris in a hurry, but I would characterize the slide as big and yucky.
