At the Fall Creek NE facing ridgetop, we remotely triggered a very reactive slab at 15-20cm deep, sitting on buried precipitation particles and buried surface hoar. The crown ran about 30 ft along our slope, extended into the adjacent slope, sluffing a small amount of debris 50 ft below us. It was snowing S2 for another hour, and light snow until dark.
