Avalanche

Saw one of the cornices on the east ridge of Ogden come off and bring down some sloughs off the steep slope. Fairly small snow volume but the snow cloud still dusted the skin track just behind us. Would definitely avoid steep E/NE slopes in the area for a while. Looked heavily wind affected and some of the cornices that haven't come off yet are huge.
