Comments
Warm temps and saturated snow from previous night's rain were main contributors to instability. Slide started with small point release and slowly fanned out. Hit lower, steeper fan and gouged down to dirt before hitting highway. Covered inside lane completely and most of other lane with 2-4' of snow. WL-N-D1.75-R2. 
 
Plow had to make several passes to clear very heavy deposition.
