Skier Accidental Size Two 2 wind slab Mt Cokely. 50 cm fracture line ran into bottom of Rosseau Bowl.  Single skier invovled no injuries but scary! The wind loading on that day was intense and dry over night on the 9th 10th am and kept pumping in the day. I was on Mt Cain that day and the windloading was really something and due to the cool dry conditions the slabs were lower in the Start Zones than normal. On this day the Hazard was rated as CONSIDERABLE with a special notice for 'REDISTRIBUTED WINDSLAB' in the Alpine.

More details to follow.
