Yule Pass Destructive slides

CBAC CBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 01/02/2022
Name: Zach Guy

Zone: Northwest Mountains
Route Description: Yule Pass (Purple, Treasury, Treasure, and Mt. Justice ridgeline)

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: This area seemed to be the bullseye for the most destructive slides of the cycle, generally D3 to D4 in size, most crowns looked crisp so they ran on 12/31. Impressive crown depths (up 12 to 15 feet) and some wild propagation across multiple start zones. Mostly on northerly and east aspects.  A few of these are west of our forecast area, but they were significant enough to document here.
