Comments: 
8-10" of new heavy, dense snow this evening. Skied well, surfed on top. Halfway down the steep roll-over on Dogleg, I unintentionally triggered a small wet slide. About 3 ski widths wide. Stopped about 50 vertical feet above where the chute flattens out. Only noticed it when I stopped a bit lower down and looked back up. Also intentionally triggered a similar sized wet slide a bit lower down on dogleg on the steep portion below the road. Ski cut this one and it went 50 feet down or so. Snowing most of the evening, wet, often heavy, very poor visibility, can't even see the slide in the photo from 200 feet away.
