Massive avalanches

CBAC CBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 01/01/2022
Name: Zach Guy

Zone: Northwest Mountains
Route Description: Viewed from Mt. CB. Got a window of so-so vis and could see a handful of peaks in the Northwest Mountains and Gothic.

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: Numerous very destructive avalanches, ranging from D3 to D4 in size. Couldn’t see runouts so making estimates on size based on terrain size, crown size, and amount of snow in tracks and runouts. All of the crowns shown in the photos below look crisp enough that they likely ran yesterday.
