Comments: 
The east aspect of the Birthday Bowls slid sometime on 1/23 or overnight into 1/24 (the slide was fresh yesterday morning). Today it's been filled in somewhat with the new snow and some wind, but the bed surface and debris are still obvious. Depth is roughly 3' or so, with quite a wide path a few hundred feet down the ridge and about an equally long run vertically. This is the second time I've seen this slide this season. Picture 1: The meat of the slide Picture 2: The top of the slide off the ridge. Note the crown off the other side of the ridge as well and the tracks that just squeeze in between.
