Is this an Avalanche Observation:
The avalanche fractured directly above me about 10 feet or so. I was caught and carried roughly 30 feet before it stopped. I was buried to my neck but I was very close to the surface so I got myself out easily. I never would have thought I could have triggered something at that angle, which I estimate was maybe 30 degrees. I was super shaken up and didn't want to stick around to get more precise measurements, so all of the numbers are estimated aside from elevation and time because I had those recorded when I dropped a pin on my map.
