Comments: 

I  discovered this very wide slide today.  Not very deep. but it ran all the way to the base.  In exposed terrain where the snow pack was shallow it pulled out the entire snow pack and in others just the new snow.  I believe this naturally slid just prior to the cold snow we got last night.
