During the big snow storms and heavy loading of the snowpack in early March, Colorado experienced an historic avalanche cycle. Many avalanche paths ran larger than they had in decades this website. Several paths went beyond their trim line taking hundreds of trees out. A few new paths were formed altogether. The Garfield Express avalanche path sits right above the townsite of Garfield (3 miles east of Monarch Mountain). The path had grown in with trees over the decades but was reestablished by a large avalanche earlier this month. Impressive.
