Aspect:
Elevation: 9300

Avalanches:
Weather: The mechanical water read-out from 5 a.m. was late to record the data so the water equivalent I gave earlier was low. So the 24 hour total (14 hours really since it started at 5) is 11 1/2″ new snow with 1.00″ of water. Snowpack at 33″. Wind is starting to pick up a little but still light at 2-4 SW but some gusts are just starting up. Snow is letting up a little as well. Temp. holding steady at 28F. No visibility. billy
