I was up there that day and heard they were bombing from a copter in the moring. Here's a clear shot of the crown from the same vantage point:

Oh yeah, and here's my new blue jacket I had to buy because I forgot my shell :bananas: :

Seen the video on stevens pass website. Didn't see as story as to who or why. I was at Yodelin when it was going down. I could hear, but not see a damn thing.

It's the opposing ridge on the backside, across mill creek, above the power lines.

Yeah, what's the point. Is a road or resort near by.

Of course a big hanging snowfield with lots of new snow is going to avalanche with a bomb.

The chute on the left looks fun.

That was the back side of Cowboy mountain. I took my shot from the top of Big Cheif. I think they blew that because there's tails just below that. The run out actually looked like it came out pretty close to those areas.
