A link to the Grant Gunderson Photography showing out of bounds avalanche control work near Mount Baker Washington that resulted in the release of a 12 to 13 foot slab. I would NOT stand where this guy is standing:
"there is a very deep and still active layer in our snow pack that may become very active when the temps start to raise. A profile of the large crown on Hemispheres showed a very hard ICY bed surface with a layer of facets above it that the slab was sitting on."
Be careful out there! There's no equipment that could possibly help if you were caught in something like this.
