Cement Creek

CB Avalanche Center 2019-20 Observations

Location: Cement Creek Area
Date of Observation: 02/13/2020
Name: Cosmo
Subject: Cement Creek
Elevation: 9400′

Snowpack: ~1.5″ new snow @ 6am and snowing lightly.

Toured around yesterday (2/12) between 9300′-10000′ on NW-S aspects. Snow pack varied greatly from aspect to aspect. Some big collapses lower down on open west facing terrain, likely cross loaded. Some smaller, isolated collapses on NW facing convexity just below a ridgline. Signs of instability decreased with elevation. South facing slopes were shallow with a thin sun crust on top of the few inches we got earlier this week, on top of a much thicker/harder crust. Below the lower crust was facets pretty much to the ground. Snow depths ranged from less than 30cm to 140cm depending on where you were.
