Comments: Witnessed a slide near Scatter Creek in the Salmon La Sac riding area. The two of us dropped in to a southeastern facing bowl. After about two minutes after reaching the bottom of the bowl the slide released. We were watching and able to get to safety. The crown was 2-2.5ft deep and started from above and lookers right of our drop. There was another group of five that arrived minutes after it happened. We decided to head back out the way we came and we warned them not to continue. They did not listen and I hope they are home safe tonight. One of the guys in the group of five was from Ellensberg. I will send pictures in an email and a google earth pin of the location.
