The Sawtooth Fire at the Summit of Downing Mountain has burned 310 acres mostly on the upper slopes of the main avalanche path descending from the peak to the creek on the the south face. Having skied there before, I can attest to its remoteness and generally difficult accessibility. This fire presents no current danger to the lodge as it is 3 miles distant and on the summit. The skiing should be improved on this aspect as there was a fair bit of timber in the upper reaches of this avalanche area. The lower run is altogether open traveling through a gully, passed beautiful rocky gendarmes. I doubt that the fire will burn much in an easterly direction without significant fire weather which is not predicted.
