Kory here with Ogden Avalanche, with the thought of full disclosure, I am going to ramble at you for the next couple paragraphs. Today I went for a small ride in a wind slab avalanche on the North Ogden Divide. Earlier that day, I had triggered a couple of other small avalanches on test slopes at similar elevation but different aspect. I knew that the probability was high to trigger an avalanche as I skied across the slope. Please do not think that I am downplaying the event.
I turned to my partner and said "lets see if we can get this to avalanche" I started my ski cut across the slope with speed. The slope fractured above me, which surprised me, since I thought I was at the break over. I kept moving trying to ski off slab when I could not continue my forward progress. I started going for a ride. I looked around still on my feet trying to gain momentum to out ski the slide but I could not. I tipped over uphill, skis down hill riding on top. Not to worried. I was able to stand back up and ski off the slab about mid path.
