Comments: 

On our exit out from our tour today we took a break near the top of Red Rock Chutes. Peering into the chutes noticed a wet point release step down and entrain a fair bit of snow.  Ran a suprising distance.

Comments: 

Close up of the debris. May not burry you but could definitely push you into something unwanted or rake you over some rocks.

Comments: 

All it took was warm temps and a bit of sun on the red rock to get the party started.
