Notes

From a skier: "as we were digging a pit, we got into a conversation with three skiers as they skinned past. They had skinned up Rip Curl (from Hayden Creek) and then continued S. along Woody Ridge. They experienced several large collapses along the ridge line and eventually remotely triggered a cornice collapse that set off an avalanche (described as a large powder cloud) in the Climax slide path (E. aspect)."
