Comments: 

There were actually two slides on the West Willow Ridgeline, one was a repeater in the corner pocket of the ridge line that has already avalanched twice this year, the other was on the east end of the ridge in the aspens, both appeared to be new snow only, it was a long ways away and the photo is not that great.
