Events of the day

Skier triggered avalanche in Common Bowl. It is unknown if the skier was caught and carried, but we saw the two skiers involved continue down the slope after—assumed it was uneventful. Soft slab propagated out from a slight slope break. Appeared to break between the old snow/storm slab interface, roughly 100ft wide and ran the length of the remaining slope (~200ft).
