Snodgrass Mountain has a series of steep, relatively short NE facing avalanche chutes with relatively easy access. Please keep in mind that there is a road at the bottom of these avy paths, and if you set off a slide you may be burying unsuspecting people below. All of these zones are capable of producing a deadly avalanche. From E to W: California Bowl is shorter than the others and ends in an especially dangerous terrain trap. The Weather Station Trees are steep and relatively tight. First Bowl is the longest and then Second and Third are shorter.
