CB Avalanche Center 2016-17 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 11/29/2016
Name: Tony Martin
Subject: Red Lady Avalanche
Aspect: South East
Elevation: Above treeline

Avalanches: Saw 2 skiers thru my telescope on top red Lady at 11:40 AM. First skier triggered a large avalanche after appx. 10 turns that ran from appx. 50 yards below the summit down to the flatter area / several hundred yards below the summit. It broke slightly above and 20 yards skiers right of the skier (skier not caught).
Hard to tell from here how wide it was from here, but guesstimating 75 to 100 yards in width
