Zone or Region:
Tamarack Out of Bounds
North Backcountry Gate at Tamarack Resort
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes
Size 2: Could bury, injure, or kill a person
East facing slope. 3 foot crown which slid almost 50 feet and around 25 feet wide. Large crack beneath crown.
Skier triggered slide just outside of North Gate at Tamarack Resort at some time during the day, seen by patrollers around 3 pm. Tracks indicated they triggered it from above and were not carried. Could easily knock you off your feet but wouldn't carry you far. It is a convexity that windloaded during the snow event in the early morning hours of the 21st.
