CB Avalanche Center 2018-19 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 04/12/2019
Name: Whitney Gilliam

Subject: Schuylkill Small Wet Loose
Aspect: East
Elevation: ~9,900ft

Avalanches: Two separate small Wet Loose skier triggered avalanches at about 11:45am on a small convexity on the slope.
Weather was much warmer and sunnier than expected so this type of avalanche was predicted!
Noticed the snow heating up around 11, and turned around earlier than planned.

Weather: Sunny and Warm. No wind.
