Mid-Elevation Crown, Saddle Peak

From GCSAR and Bridger Bowl Ski Patrol:

A skier triggered a slide descending the skyline/nose of Saddle Peak. No one was caught. It initially triggered at the first rock band, then pulled out much wider at the second rock band. The skier was on his second lap was the third set of tracks on the peak. All tracks were accounted for and a beacon search of the debris came up empty.

Depth was described as "full depth" (2-3') and running on the depth hoar.

Crown was 80' wide on the first horizontal band and 500+' on the second. The lower crown wrappped around the ridge out of view.
