Highway 550 – Red Mountain Pass Avalanche control

Helitrax guide and snow safety director Mark Rikkers took these photos from the helicopter.

Helitrax was assisting CDOT and CAIC to mitigate a few of the larger paths that affect Highway 550, West Guadalupe and West Riverside. Some good results with 27# charges. Aspects are E–NE. West Riverside ran full track twice, but left debris only in the creek and just dusted the road.
