A skier triggered an avalanche on Monday in "the burn" outside of the boundaries of Bald Mtn. They skied off a small cornice and landed on a NE facing open slope. Their partner yelled "avalanche!", and they were able to ski out of the slide to a safe spot. This avalanche overran previous ski tracks.
The group had been skiing this area during the past few days. In previous days, they observed small natural avalanches on small terrain features steeper than 35 degrees. They stuck to skiing ridgelines and slopes lower than 30 degrees. After numerous laps on the day of the slide, they saw many tracks in steeper areas and "gained confidence in the snowpack and let my guard down."
