ObservationsR2D1.5 storm slab on north aspect, 6,500', ~35 degree slope that broke 15-30cm down, probably about 200' across running 2-300' through trees. There may have been a larger slide in the gully that propagated into the trees, but I didn't go in there to see. One ski track near the roll in the picture that could have caused it as well. The slide probably ran late yesterday or early today.
Two hand pits with CT10 Q1 shear breaking on the same layer.
