Snodgrass Observation

CBAC 2014-15 Observations

NAME: Evan Ross
DATE: 3/9/15
LOCATION: Snodgrass
ELEVATIONBTL 
ASPECT: NE
WEATHER: Mostly clear, real warm again and no wind.
SNOWPACK:
Persistent slab structure is really scary in many places, yet we didn’t feel a single collapse traveling on a variety of slope angles and terrain features. Where the HS is deep, over 150cm say, the facets below the slab have more resistance and better bonding with one another. Where the HS is shallower the facets below the slab are fist hard and full sugar. Boot pen around 20-30cm on all slopes.
AVALANCHE OBS: 
All kinds of old carnage on this side of snodgrass. Most of the terrain over 35 degrees has already avalanched, but there are still a few pockets left.
