Cold and quiet

CB Avalanche Center 2020-21 Observations

Date of Observation: 02/04/2021
Name: Con Rad

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Location: It’s a secret stash that no one knows about
Aspect: North East
Elevation: 10,400

Avalanches: Saw one in the furthest west gully on Gothic and some on N and NE facing steeper shots on Schyukill but viz was somewhat hampered by in and out light.

Weather: Lightly snowing off and on some winds from SW that was transporting snow. But I’m no meteorologist.

Snowpack: Ski pen 8″, no signs of instability where we were skiing. Seemed like the wet and warm start to the storm pasted into old tracks and then the cold dry snow finish was what we were skiing in. It also seemed like the wind blew up the slope and then down the slope. Or down the slope and then up the slope. Like I said, I’m no meteorologist.
