Avalanche debris pile bottom of left gully on Mt Mansfield

Location of Observation: Left Gully Mt Mansfield, Stowe VT
Lots of recent snow, a small amount of icing last night followed by warm temps. I believe this to be natural but it’s possible it was human triggered before I got there. I did not see any evidence of this but the debris was huge and it was tough to tell. This is on Mt Mansfield not Mt Washington just thought you might like to see it.
The debris field goes up as far as you can see in the photo. Choking up the entire lower part of the gully. Above this section is a very large cliff and the gully continues above this. When the upper section slides it is deposited here. This is not unusual but the size of the snow boulders and the length of the debris pile was impressive.
