I was skinning up bachelor on Thursday the 27th and a friend pointed out what appears to be a slide. We figured it was the warm weather that may have caused a cornice to break and cause a slide. The slide was on the South Ridge leading up to the top of Broken Top. Just above the tree line in what I would call bowl one. It was East to South East facing meaning it got a lot of sun. The location I put on the map is my best guess. I saw the slide when I was up on Saturday as well.
Broken Top, S. Ridge 1st Bowl East Facing
