Cement mountain avalanche observation

CB Avalanche Center 2017-18 Observations

Location: Cement Creek Area
Date of Observation: 01/30/2018
Name: Eric Murrow

Subject: Cement mountain avalanche observation
Aspect: North
Elevation: 11,500’

Avalanches:

While taking the dog for his afternoon romp, I noticed an avalanche in upper horse basin on cement mountain. I can’t quite remember when the last day I was up here but I believe it was Saturday 1/27 ( not real confident on this but my best guess). Sorry for the horrible image, but with naked eye I could ID this from valley floor. This is a north aspect @ treeline. Good example of terrain you won’t see me skiing anytime soon; near treeline, shaded aspect, and obvious wind affected! I would say it’s a D1.5 or maybe D2.
