Climax Chutes

CBAC CBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 02/25/2022
Name: Eric Murrow

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Route Description: A look at natural avalanches on Climax Chutes. Several of these avalanches were reported in an observation on Wednesday.

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: Widespread mid-storm avalanche cycle in Climax Chutes. Per a previous observation, most of these likely ran early Wednesday morning. Thin cloud cover obscured good views of crowns, but aprons below each Climax Chute had a substantial amount of debris with two paths creating very large debris piles. Small portions of some features may not have failed, but overall Climax looks to have cleaned out a major portion of the storm snow.
Weather: Just hazy enough to muck up clear photos of the start zones Friday morning.
