Cement Creek Snow

CB Avalanche Center 2020-21 Observations

Date of Observation: 02/14/2021
Name: Cosmo Langsfeld

 

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Location: Cement Creek Ranch
Aspect:
Elevation: 9250′

 

Avalanches:
Weather: Snow fall quit by mid morning Sunday. ~10″ of new snow since Friday afternoon/evening. That might include some of the snow that fell later in the day on Friday, but most is from Saturday/Saturday night.
Snowpack: As of Friday, the new snow from middle of last week had been blown into 1F-4F windslabs in the valley bottoms. The ones I found were 4-8″ thick. Found a very thin (<1cm) sun crust on some aspects and in the flats just below newer snow (maybe from thursday?). HS in flats is about 2-3 feet, though deeper in wind pockets, shallower where wind scoured. Snow depth of hillsides varies greatly depending on aspect.
