Ya people need to chill out, we've skied that face multiple times and took the same approach each time before. There's a multiple faces on that Mtn and only two different approaches to take. They skied that in the early AM, temperatures were definitely warmer up as they got towards the top. The avalanche forecast has been pretty High for the past few weeks,so they definitely were taking a chance. Brandon Clabaugh who was in front on the ridge heard and felt the loudest WOOMF ever, yelled down at Brent and each jumped further onto the ridge! Luckily they were in a semi good spot and the fracture was a good 30+ feet in front of them. 20 seconds later the whole other side (lookers left) slid out and almost took out his sled and camera.
I wasn't around for this ski, things could have been a lot worse with three people, we're all just glad things turned out how they did. It ended up being a cool shot and that's why i thought i'd share.
