Avalanche Obs from Kebler Pass Area

CB Avalanche Center2018-19 Observations

Location: Kebler Pass Area
Date of Observation: 11/26/2018
Name: Eric Murrow

Subject: Avalanche Obs from Kebler Pass Area
Elevation: 9200′ – 12400′


Scoping around the Kebler Pass area from the Red Lady skin track avalanches from Saturday and Sunday were extensive.
Starting with Axtel – numerous slides in Green Lake Bowl/Chutes, the Tongue (feature between Green Lake and 4th bowl), nearly all of 4th Bowl, nearly all of 3rd Bowl. Many ran early in the storm and were partially refilled.
Anthracites-multiple crowns in Playground, upper Playground underneath East Ohio Peak, refilled in most areas
Owen-multiple crowns on north and easterly aspects
Redwell Basin – multiple crowns, refilled in many places

Again avalanches were focused on N, NE, and E. After checking out Kebler Pass and Paradise Divide area, a huge portion of N and NE NTL and ATL terrain avalanched. I would be highly suspicious of any steep N, NE, or E terrain NTL and ATL that did not slide. Most photos were a bit boring because many crowns and paths refilled, but included are a small sample of activity.
