Route & General Observations

Observed this after driving down from skiing in pass today. Assume it was skier triggered as there was a skin track leading up to it, and then tracks leading down from avalanche site. Didn’t look like anyone was caught. Hopefully the party puts up a better observation but in case they don’t thought I would share. 4000ft SW slope about 3 miles up little su valley up Lone Tree Gulch. Hard to say from so far away but looked to be about 200′ wide by 2ft deep.
