The last couple of weeks have been unprecedented in Colorado avalanche history. Heavy winter storms have caused avalanches of historic proportions to wreak mayhem across the state’s highways, ski resorts, and even caused deaths.
One of these huge avalanches changed the landscape for residents in Frisco after it slid overnight near the J Chute just off Rainbow Lake, felling trees and leaving a gigantic white scar that looks like a ski run on the side of the mountain. Now the newly created avalanche chute between Peak 1 and Mount Victoria is getting even more attention on social media. As the path is estimated to be a couple of hundred feet wide locals are looking to name it.
A particular favorite around the county is Silent Bob, due to it’s proximity to J Chute, a reference to the movie “Clerks”, reports Summit Daily.
Black Thursday Chute and Ironing Board have also been thrown out, although some Facebook users are saying you can’t name it until you’ve skied it (which is dangerous and not recommended, officials say).
