Comments

Most east facing slopes off Camelback Ridge in the Danish Pass Area recently avalanched. There were many snowmobile tracks in the area, some entering the avalanches, and it is likely that the avalanche(s) were triggered... A rider at the trailhead told me he thinks these avalanches occurred on Thursday, New Years Eve. 12-31-2015
