Oh yea, MtBaldy.....
Sometime around the late '90's, I dropped into SouthBowl solo, right toeside traversed to the S side, and caused a 10 minute avalanche behind me. I just hunkered down and waited till the clouds of snow subsided, and the bowl down was full of 3' diameter ice chunks surrounded by broken snow. That following right traverse, backside for this goofy guy, seemed to take forever, easily an hour, to bounce/skidd/crunch around the corner to the adjoining chair lift. Lift op there said I was the first to come from that side that day, as the day before, someone died in an avalanche there.
Whew.
