Small Slide in Red Lady Bowl

CB Avalanche Center 2014-15 Observations

LOCATION: Crested Butte Area
DATE OF OBSERVATION: 01/13/2015
NAME: Kyle Smith
SUBJECT: Small Slide in Red Lady Bowl
ASPECT: South
ELEVATION: 11,000

AVALANCHES: This is probably common knowledge already since I noticed it a few days ago. Skinning up red lady bowl/glades ridge, I observed a small slide on the other side of the bowl (S,SW) around 11,000ft. It looks like there was some skier activity over there, so I imagine it was triggered from a ski cut. Judging from a distance, the slide had about a 60 yard run. Since then, I have not observed any other action on the same aspect. Cheers. Be safe out there.
