The slide was about 100 feet wide and ran for about 800 vertical feet taking out some large trees.The aspect is northeast at about 9500 feet. The angle in the starting zone is around 37 degrees. Slide ran on November faceted layering.
Since the slide ran the day before it was quite safe. We used the east facing next to the slide as an exit run back to Brighton, had to jump over one stress fracture around six feet deep and a couple wide with two more concealed by the new snow below the first one.
As has been mentioned previously on this thread: after a 24 or so hour period, the slide path and the stress fractures surrounding it are unlikely to avalanche because the tension was released in the original slide and the snow has had a good long period to set up from the jolt received with the avalanche.
I wasn't worried about being on the slide path or skiing beside it, but my partner, without much experience, was a bit disturbed and learned a lot from the exposure

Don't laugh, cringe. I actually heard a sledhead say that.You are what you eat.
There's no such thing as bad snow, just shitty skiers.

You can see it from the highway. It is perhaps the most accessible peak in the Uintas. You can easily sled to the top, then yo-yo laps on the avy side.
I believe that is a NW aspect. That thing slides all the time.
