Mount Chipotle Avalanche Danger 15 February 2010

Carnitas Ravine has LOW. Natural avalanches are very unlikely and human triggered avalanches are unlikely except in isolated pockets. Normal caution is advised.

Barbacoa Ravine has LOW avalanche danger. Natural avalanches are unlikely although human triggered avalanches are possible. Unstable slabs are possible in steep terrain. Normal caution is advised.

As the Ravines warm up during spring there is an increased danger of random (1) ice falls. Ice fall danger is currently low and normal caution (2) is advised. However, guides should take this into consideration when planning routes for their spring clients.
