On the second lap out of the resort towards Hemlock Mountain, I noticed avi debris in the cirque N of the Negatives, between the 3-D chute and Hemlock Mountain. It must have happened between 9am-12pm. Once up higher on Hemlock, I was able to take a photo of the crown of a slab avlanche in a N facing chute. R2-D2. Looking through the binoculars, it appears that a skier/rider came in from the skier's left, ski cut across the chute, and triggered the slide. There was a boot pack heading back up to the ridge along the skier's right side above the crown. I saw no ski tracks down below. I saw what looked from a distance like old ski tracks that had become a positive feature along the bed surface. The slide path went down over some cliff bands a few hundered feet below.
