Winter 2014/2015 off to Slow Start — with Near Miss

Snowpack is thin. It’s going to be hard to catch up now, but Marble does get the precip once the faucet turns on. Be careful. Someone triggered and cleaned out the main bowl a few days ago. Not trivial.

We might have to start treating Marble Bowl like Highlands Bowl, with some intense boot packing in early season, perhaps while elk hunting? Seems like every season we start with a few scary avalanches in the bowl. Those could so easily be prevented with a bit of work. It’s actually a pretty small area. Ten people in October and November could take care of it. Time to be proactive?

    Snow must be getting somewhat stable below the main bowl as it doesn’t look like it went. Glad the reporting party is okay.

  1. Indeed, why let Aspen Highlands have all the fun?
