Gothic Area

CB Avalanche Center 2017-18 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 02/10/2018
Name: Evan Ross Avalanche L1

Subject: Gothic Area
Aspect: North East, East
Elevation: 9,500-11,000


Weather: Obscured sky. Light wind. 6" HST at 11,000ft at 3pm. Snowfall tapered off to S-1 in the afternoon.

Snowpack: Storm snow was unreactive with current accumulations. Foot penetration is still to the ground on shaded slopes with some supportive crusts on more sun effected easterly slopes. Couldn't feel or find much for PS stucture traveling in the terrain. Avoided the most suspect areas rather then trying to gather direct observation on those terrain features. No obvious signs to instability.
