More detailed information about the avalanche: 

Made first tracks into Wong's Bowl from the bottom in low visibility and found the bowl had slid earlier.  Our track stops at the end of the debris pile.  From what we could see it looked like it slid from the trees on the left to the small stand of trees on the right.
