Description
Ski touring up BSM backside from Polaris Bowl, near the top I put in a kick turn and felt significant settlement. Nothing propogated around me, but I noticed some trees shaking over a ridge crest 20 M away. Once I reached the summit, I could see that the slide ran all the way down to "Easy Street"
