Skier #1 decended on a rib, next to a gully. Near the bottom Skier #1 entered the run out below the gully. Skier #2 triggered a soft storm slab upon entering the gully start zone and rode approximately 150 feet down the gully/slope. Skier #1 was entrained in the debris while decending and partially buried up to chest in the deposition zone.
