From what I hear, yeah they had full avy gear with them. There were skiing telemark, which is maybe the most active slide zone in the San Fran peaks. With the 7+ ft we got in less than a week from that huge storm, conditions have to be evaluated a lot different than in years past. And I think that is making some people over-confident. As far as I know, this is the only incident since the storm, which is almost surprising considering the magnitude of the slides we had during and shortly after the big dump.
