It doesn't quite look like the 20 foot crown first reported, but it looks like EVERYTHING slid. Crazy crazy massive avy, no doubt.

Thats a decent funnel. You can get a sense of the scale by looking at the chair lift on the right

pics from today of the debris pile at the bottom of chair 8; you can sort of see the new rope line from the sticks in the fore ground and the former groomer in the background.

Just saw that hemi to gunner's had a fairly large slide on Sat apparently from a heli avy bomb? When I was up there on Wed, there were folks hitting right where it slid and a bunch of us were saying it looked loaded and ready to go...idk.

It was safe to do that day evidently. Or maybe they just didn't find the "sweet" spot. Heli bombs also exert a lot more stress on the slope than the typical skier or snowboarder getting those results. I can't say they knew what they were doing or were being stupid either way.
