BTL Loose Dry

CB Avalanche Center 2018-19 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 01/04/2019

Subject: BTL Loose Dry
Aspect: North
Elevation: 10,300′


Weather: Clear calm wind, with temperatures in the high 20’s.

Snowpack: Went in search of Dry loose avalanches BTL. We were able to trigger some small .5 and smaller slides in steeper terrain features that had not yet been effected by skier traffic. In isolated areas the snow we got to move would entrench the entire snow pack due to its weak nature. The HS was on avg. 60 cm very weak and faceted on N facing terrain BTL.
