Zone: Northwest Mountains

Location: Gothic Campground

Date of Observation: 11/09/2020

Name: steve banks


Subject: Gothic 11/9

Aspect: North East

Elevation: 9,500




Weather: Temps in the 20’s with intermittent down valley winds. Snowfall ranged from S-1 to S2 with an additional 1.5 inches of accumulation from noon to 3 pm

Snowpack: 8-10″ total snowpack. We did see cracking and some slumping of the very new snow which was surprising given the F to F+ hardness of the snowpack. Snow at the ground was moist and easily created snowballs.
