- BC Zone: Front Range
- Area Description: Just want to post some photos...I skied Trelease SE and took a photo of the avalanche up there. Usually the entire face of this summit (x12304) does slide and the debris will travel far into the flats. I also included a photo of a big avalanche on a north to northwest aspect up Sheep Gulch, off of Loveland Pass. Lastly is a photo of the main ski terrain on Trelease (or more accurately, x12304) - it has become popular this winter! Lots of tracks and some of them do top out in the center of the runout zone of the main avalanche path, which is deceivingly flat at that point but debris has traveled that far.
