Comments: 

Photos of toe of debris - looks like a nice (20' deep?) pile of debris at the toe.

Comments: 

Google Earth Image showing the general path.  I couldn't see the East facing terrain real well, but it looks like a couple of other smaller paths contributed snow to the debris pile.  These looked to be mostly wet loose slides, but fairly large.
