Debris from recent wind-slab avalanche seen on McGee Mtn today.  Start elevation appeared to be around 9500' on East aspect.  Presumably natural trigger.  See attached photo. Ski tracks were from skiers later in the day that climbed up debris field part way and skied lower mellow slopes.  Notice wind transport over ridgeline, and significant cornice formation.  D2+.
