Axtell avalanche activity

CBAC CBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 12/11/2021
Name: Ben Pritchett

Zone: Northwest Mountains
Route Description: Axtell as viewed from town

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: Couldn’t see 1st bowl well, but a few small ones below the skiers’ left cliffs. 2nd Bowl had broad-spanning soft slabs connecting the start zones a couple hundred feet below the ridgeline. Eraser and Pencil start zones both went, also well below ridgeline. That pocket feature between Wang Chung and 4th bowl went broadly. 4th bowl went R3, stopped just before the Shield. Green Lake Bowl from near the Eraser through the middle of the cliffs, looked early, kinda filled in. At least two of the Green Lake Chutes ran to the apron.
