McAtee Snowmobile triggered slide

From observation: "My riding group came upon a group of three riders from out of state digging out a sled. A single rider had been side hilling a steep slope above a deep creek drainage. This is where the trail leaves Third Yellow mule and drops into McAtee. The slope broke with a single rider high on the slope completely burying the sled. The rider managed to stay on top of the debris. The debris was very deep (~12'-15') as it filled in the drainage below."
