Yanked off the ridge today while descending the Yellowjacket/Cabin Run ridgeline. Slope angle 20 degrees or so. Had no time to get off the slab - it broke 20' beyond me. I skiied 40' to the nearest tree to plaster on as the slab and debris washed by. No intention of skiing Yellowjacket - intending to descend west to next subridge and down to trail. Debris pile ran over previous skier tracks from yesterday.

I set an event off that large once, Black Prince in the Canadian Rockies.....bc skiing is the most dangerous sport I participate in, hands down. We were lucky hombres to say the least.

It is not the snow that kills you. The majority of the time it is the trees and ice that do the dirty work. Hard to get that across to folks who think they can ski out of it every time.
