In this photo (taken from near the start of the ski hut trail) you can just make out the light green Sierra Club Ski Hut (a little up and to the right of center). It's more obvious in the full size image.

This slide occurred just minutes after I passed. It was triggered by some skiers/snowboarders. I'm not sure if there was enough snow for it to be life threatening but it did get my attention.
