2022 Slash Pile Burning Planned for Glacier View Meadows:

The Glacier View Fire Protection District in cooperation with the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control will be burning three community slash pile sites in the Glacier View Meadows subdivision during early spring 2022. Burning operations will occur as weather and snow conditions permit. Due to the size and number of piles, we expect burning operations to last several days.

Site #1: Mt. Parnassus at Green Mountain Drive

Site #2: Straw Ct at Haystack Dive

Site #3: Mt Moriah Rd


Burning will only be conducted under specific guidelines established by the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control, including having adequate snow cover on the ground and acceptable weather forecasts that meet guidelines for safe and effective burning and adequate smoke dispersal.


The main objective of burning the slash pile sites is to reduce remaining woody fuels for the purpose of public safety. The existing community slash piles are a result of Glacier View Meadows HOA free community slash disposal program aimed to assist landowners reduce hazardous fuels in the wildland urban interface.


 Glacier View Fire Protection District works closely with partner agencies such as the Colorado Air  Pollution Control Division, Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control, Larimer County Sheriff’s         Department, and the Larimer County Department of Public Health in developing and implementing any pile burning project. Smoke may affect your health.
