Went up the Norns (Ladybird creek) today and watched a big slide come down just up the valley from us. Was freaky hearing it then watching it take out dozens of full grown trees! Watch the video in full screen to appreciate the force of it! We were lucky we had stopped for a beer break as the trail cross the valley and goes up through the trees right where the debris piled up. :eek: Could have been a close one.

We climbed up through the bowl afterward and played on the backside where there weren't any cornices to drop and start more slides. Jer stuck the Viper in right at the top, was close to rolling it back down into the bowl! :D

Turning out to be an odd spring, making me think twice before hitting any hills. Usually by this time of year I don't hesitate but snowpack is not settling down with all the rain/warm weather and not freezing/setting up at night. Be safe out there boys!
