Lovely day off tour in the Middle Fork.
After getting those shooting cracks, and seeing the fresh loose wet avalanches, we opted to ski a northwest aspect with lower angled slopes that had been wind stripped, rather than loaded, and no wet snow. We skied 10" of nice soft snow on top of the crust with only minor cracking.
We saw these from an adjacent slope through the trees. Didn't see starting point or terminus.
