Going up the ridge there were a few whomps on the hard wind slabs. I knew the snow was wind deposited in the gullies and the danger was considerable. My plan was to ski the side of a gully. I recognized the slope increase and proceeded to cut across the slope both as a skier cut and to find soft snow. I was already to the opposite side of the avalanche when it propagated and was easily able to ski away. My decision to enter that area was based on the overall slope angle being below 30 degrees, however, looking back at the slope on CalTopo https://caltopo.com/m/7ML1U I bullseyed the small 32-34 degree pocket. Though it initiated without a lot of energy, it picked up speed. I was surprised that it slid as far and as fast as it did.
