Gothic Obs 7am

CB Avalanche Center 2015-16 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 01/25/2016
Name: billy barr
Subject: Gothic Obs 7am

Weather: There was 3″ new snow in the past 24 hours with 0.18″ of water. Not overly significant. Snow pack at 40½” and it has been hovering between 38-42″ most days of late. Cleared and cooling at sunrise today.
Snowpack: South facing slopes have developed a crust and steep south slopes were sloughing over the weekend- just point releases but picking up some snow on the way down so could be a problem again later in the week if it warms (highs were 36 and 37ºF Friday and Saturday). billy
