Low angle powder and a machine triggered slide…

CB Avalanche CenterCBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 02/06/2022

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Route Description: From my house to the south end of Axtell and a little beyond. 8,900-11,000 feet. E, NE & NW aspects; mostly low angle.

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: I was witness to the snow machine triggered slide that Evan described in his observation.
Weather: Lots of sunshine and little wind. Quite peaceful out there until my solitude was rudely interrupted by Evan on his sled ripping around and triggering avalanches😁
Snowpack: The alpine is quite wind-affected, but much of the rippled snow is still skiing well. Protected NW & NE, low-angle, BTL terrain is fast, faceted (but supportable) powder. Quite pleasant, really.
