Route & General Observations

Skier triggered wind slab on Tincan Proper on Thur, Feb 25th. No one caught. Slab was reported to us through social media (Instagram). Photo below was taken from this post. From speaking with a person in another group in the vicinity, slab appeared to be a wind slab that was 6-8″ deep with wide propagation. Debris was reported to have stopped well short of the valley bottom (Center Creek) despite a decent powder cloud.

Big thanks to this individual for passing on this info!
