Natural crown on Emigrant Peak

From obs 1/10/22: "Saw this recent natural slide, probably a day or two old, while skiing on Emigrant. Start zone approx 10,400ft, E facing. We guessed the crown was 3-5ft deep. Evidence of wind loading on similar surrounding slopes, suggesting wind slab as culprit." Photo: T. Benson
