Comments: 

A close call - a wet loose natural on Monday, probably triggered by the rain.

"A buddy in my business class showed me this from Monday afternoon.  He was there to dig out three teenage boy’s clothes from the debris.  No one was buried.  A very close call and a good message to always be prepared and that yes, hiking to the hot springs is avalanche terrain.  He claims it was a point release avalanche just under the cliff band.  Could be interesting to check out, would love to come along."
