More detailed information about the avalanche: 

3 mid-storm avalanches in the steeper N/NE aspect side of Red Cone bowl.  They look to have released on the evening of 3/16 during the storm.  It appears a wind lip failure or wind slab entrained more loose storm snow on the way down.  The largest ran pretty far downslope - hundreds of feet.
