While skiing up the Williams Drainage, saw a R1D1.5 point release remotely triggered by control work on opposite side of mountain by TSV. Slide was on E aspect of Kachina, started in rocks just below summit, ran about 700' and spread to about 250' at bottom; only moved fresh snow. While traveling through the flat-rolling trees W of Williams Lake, I triggered widespread collapsing. Only heard one collapse above treeline in the talus field approach to LFP. The pit indicated wind deposits and last week's storm snow are bonding well. I'd still be wary of steep trees where the faceted foundation under the storm snow is weaker than what I'm seeing in the alpine.
