Comments: 

We noticed a fair amount of recent wet activity on north and northeast facing mid elevation slopes in the Wood Camp Area.  These likely occurred over the weekend with record warm temperatures on Saturday and rain and wind on Sunday.

This one looks to have been initiated by either a cornice fall or a shallow wind slab, but it involved wet snow in descent.
