More detailed information about the avalanche: 

Skier triggered windslab noticed from the bottom of the negatives. The slab broke wide and clean and connected across the top of the slope. Total result of last night's heavy SW winds. Did not see it happen but heard that the skier was carried downslope. 
*Forecaster comment - June Mtn Ski patrol saw a skier shortly after slide skiing down debris. Another second-hand report came in as well that skier was caught, but was able to ski away.
