Avalanche in the last week off of north side of Kelso Mountain has considerable debris covering the road in the middle of the 1.4 miles of private land. It could be a while this year to get to the summer TH.

Isn't that aspect East? Regardless, thanks for the info. Have you sent that in to the CAIC?

Bean, it looks like it is the gully directly north of Kelso's summit as seen I this map. Kelso Mtn North Gully

It is actually the slide path on the NE aspect of Kelso Mtn. The gully in the picture is much too shallow and the adjacent slopes are much too rounded to be the one on the North side of Kelso. Trees in satellite view look similar too to the NE slide path.
