Comments: 

Tim Beaman reported this slide today and asked me to include it with my obs.  A 300' wide section of the steep northerly facing bank slid onto the groomed cross country trail, just west of the summertime ropes course.  It put a large amount of snow on the groomed trail, up to 3 or 4' in places.  At this elevation, the trigger likely involved rain and the debris looked like wet slide debris.
