Location: Kebler Pass Area
Date of Observation: 03/10/2019
Name: Erik Niemeyer

Subject: Carbon Peak
Aspect: North East
Elevation: 9,200


The NE gully (north of The Spoon) ran top to bottom and wall to wall. Scoured many large trees from the edges of the gully, crossed FR 737 and went up the opposite hillside about 500m. Debris is also damming Carbon Creek with a small pool upstream of the field. Estimate it was a D4R5 that occurred on 3/8 or 3/9. A cross country skier we ran into reported they skied through this area on 3/7 and there was no slide. Wished we had a camera or phone with us.

Weather: Sunny. Calm winds. -5C.
