My partner kicked a piece of cornice and fell off the ridge with it but stopped at the top of the slope, only 6-8 feet below the ridge. With minimal exposure below (no large cliffs, just some rocks that are covered at higher snow levels lower in the path) and the smaller size of the cornice, we were both comfortable kicking it to trim it back. We talked (he was close enough we were able to discuss in a normal speaking voice) and decided he could stay there while I continued to kick cornice. The next cornice chunk down the ridge that I kicked triggered a SS R2\/D2 avalanche with an ~3 foot crown that carried him through rocks and buried him up to his waist after he traveled ~600 vertical feet. He was not injured.\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003ELessons learned\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003EMy partner could have traversed out of the slide path and been in a safe spot where he could continue to watch me while I continued to kick. Also, this path was the only one on our route that did not slide with explosives on our first pass. We had gotten similar R2's with 2-3 foot crowns on most of the other paths on the route. Since the slide paths on this route are all similar aspect, bringing explosives on the second pass to mitigate slope hazard prior to kicking cornice would have been prudent. Looking back, considering the size and location, choosing to kick the cornice itself to mitigate the hazard is something I would do again and was not a contributing factor.\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003ETravel mode\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003ESki\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003ESeverity of incident\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003ESerious\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003ECould this happen again?\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003EYes\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003EWhy or why not?\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \n \u003C\/div\u003E\n\u003C\/div\u003E\n\n\u003Cdiv class=\"panel panel-default\"\u003E\n \u003Cdiv class=\"panel-body\"\u003E\n \u003Cdiv class=\"page-header\"\u003E\u003Ch2\u003EContributing Factors\u003C\/h2\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\n\n \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003EField Team\/Individual\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003ELoss of situational awareness, Poor decisions, Overconfidence\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \n \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003EOrganization\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003C\/div\u003E\n\u003C\/div\u003E\n\n\u003Cdiv class=\"panel panel-default\"\u003E\n \u003Cdiv class=\"panel-body\"\u003E\n \u003Cdiv class=\"page-header\"\u003E\u003Ch2\u003EWeather, Snowpack & Avalanche\u003C\/h2\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\n \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003ESnow climate\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003EMaritime\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003EPrimary weather event\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003ESnowfall and wind\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003ESecondary weather event\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003EAvalanches present in the previous 24 hours\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003ENo\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003EWas this a post-mitigation or assessment release?\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003ENone\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003EAvalanche problem type\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003EStorm Slab\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003EAvalanche type\u003C\/b\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-8\" style=\"white-space:pre-line;\"\u003ESoft Slab\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E \u003Cdiv class=\"row\"\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\"col-md-4 text-md-right\"\u003E\u003Cb\u003EAvalanche size -
