Are you sure the video is from a Wednesday slide? We were riding up the Collins lift on Sunday morning (March 4) when they blew the portion between Little Chute and Main. That explosion resluted in a HUGE slide that ran down into Ballroom and the powder cloud made it almost all the way to the lift. It was gigundus.
We then skied off toward Glory Hole and Devil's Castle. While we were over there, they blew the Main Chute to west-shoulder area and I think that's the slide most of those videos are from.
In both cases, they were setting off multiple large charges simultaneously and knocked off what looked like ALL the snow in that hanging snowfield that adjoins Little and Main. Once the second one was over on Sunday, it didn't look like there was any snow at all left to come down.

- has a before-and-after of the second of the two big slides.
On Saturday morning, we also saw a moderate powder slide on that smaller chute to looker's right of Main. It was a hand-route slide and I actually got some photos of that one. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me on Sunday morning. Dontcha know.
