Snodgrass

CBAC 2014-15 Observations

NAME: Evan Ross
DATE: 15-02-18
ACTIVITY: BC Skiing
LOCATION: Snodgrass
ELEVATION: 9,400’ to 11,100’
ASPECT: NE



WEATHER: Mostly clear sky and a really nice day. Calm winds with some light down valley gusts.

SNOWPACK/AVALANCHE OBS: Just a weak facet sandwich out there. Any wind hardened slab that we found was faceted and the snowpack layering just didn’t have the ingredients for a slab problem. Surface Hoar was chilling about 20cm below the snow surface, but again needed some type of slab. Small sloughs where the only instability.
