My first report, so forgive the vagueness. We were skinning up the road, and noticed this avalanche. I'm not sure if it had already been reported. Exact coordinates (plus)040.505268/(minus)111.075201 @ 8149ft. (sorry, the plus/minus symbols won't work). There were snow machine tracks about 50ft to the north of this slope, I couldn't tell if there were tracks at the bottom of the slide. I don't have enough experience/knowledge to do a full assessment. (I take my Avy 1 class next Feb 9!) We just stayed on the road; either the coverage was poor on south facing aspects, or we didn't feel the north facing aspects were safe.
