Vague report of a natural avalanche in SE to E facing terrain above 12,000' today.  A foot+ of new snowfall that appeared not to be wind deposited from Thursday and Thursday night was warmed today by full sunshine and warm air temps and released in a couloir feature between 2 parties of skiers climbing the couloir.  Fortunately the first party was above where it released, and the other party was far downslope and was not hit, as the slide ran a considerable distance way down the couloir.
