I only turned up two obvious slab avalanches while glassing the Boulders, Smokys, and Sawtooths (Decker, Finger of Fate and south) from the highway. I only saw a handful of small wet loose avalanches in SE and S-facing terrain.
Clear skies. Mid-30s F (midday) on and north of the Pass, low 40s F along the Boulders.

Less wet loose avalanches than expected. I think the cooler temps + a breeze kept things held together. There was still thin snow cover from Monday's storm on upper elevation rocks (unmelted) in the Boulders and White Clouds.
Those factors along with wind press from the storm seemed like it was too much to overcome for much action.
