A skier triggered an avalanche near Elephant’s Back off Carson Pass near Lake Tahoe, CA today.
Sierra Avalanche Center Report:
First skier descended slope without incident (ski track mostly covered by debris, but visible in middle left of photo). Second skier did a hard ski cut really pushing with his legs and triggered the avalanche (skier visible at crown in photo). The debris ran over our skin track. We did go one at a time though that area but it seemed solid. We were heading to the looker’s left area shot Eback, but did not like the layers and dropped over to this area, I did a hasty pit and it seemed okay, clearly it was not. – SAC
