More detailed information about the avalanche: 

Recently occured(did not obvserve in real time), naturally caused off West Willow Peak. Slid on the crust layer and ran down to the tree line. Throughout the day there was observed cracking, and collapsing of the snow on flat serfaces and small slabs on road cuts. A great day to do some observations, but not for a good rip! Fist photo is the described, second photo was into road cut.
