Avalanches: See photos. First skier triggered the slide on an old bed surface that had run early season. I then triggered another skiing down to him. Both crowns were 8-10″ or so. Both fractured at our feet and we were both able to stay on our feet and ski out. Snow moved on the slow side for the pitch we were on.
