Avalanche Details

Headed up to Snowbird glacier for some pow turns. Passed a large wet slide just before heading up glacier creek off Reed Lakes trail which is typical for this area. Slide wasn’t very far from the trail. Potentially this may have happened on 4/5 when it was very warm and there was other wet loose activity? There was just a light dusting on the debris. Pretty long slide path. Today was perfect temperatures for skiing into the 20s and powdery. No other wet slides observed but new snow was definitely warming on our way back out on sun exposed aspects. Not looking forward to the melt out!
