Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 04/03/2020
Subject: Dust on crust, and maybe some dust?
Aspect: South East, West
Avalanches: Newer sluffy ones on an east face. A small windslab on skiers right side of a west facing gully. Did kick off a small piece of cornice with a foot down into a SE aspect and it got new snow moving, 20′ wide, at a pretty good rate that ran through choke and out into apron below. Did not dig deeper into snowpack but enough to knock you off your feet and wreck your day.
Weather: 5-10 mph breeze up top
Snowpack: West had 2-4 inches of dust on firm crust
