Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 02/05/2016
Name: Jafar Tabaian
Subject: Coney’s tour
Aspect: North East, East, South East
Elevation: 12000

Avalanches: Noted a couple avalanches on Schuykill and Redwell, see photos. Cornice on Schuykill ridge looked a little scary, especially around the nob.
Weather: Bluebird day, but windy on ridge top. Wind was mostly coming out of the North and was very chilly. We could see heavy snow transport from the wind off Mt. Emmons into the bowl.
Snowpack: Skied 2 laps, a bit of a wind crust up high but very nice snow about halfway down the slope. No avalanche activity noted while skiing but we had several collapses on the skin track up. New snow hasn’t formed into any sort of slab. Ski pen was roughly at boot line.
