Date of Observation: 03/30/2020
Name: Steve Banks
Subject: It snowed more
Aspect: North East
Elevation: 9,000-12,000

Avalanches: None observed today

Weather: It snowed a lot more than expected. Sunny spells in the morning gave way to S3 from noon to 2 pm. Even then it kept snowing mostly S1-2 through the afternoon. Hell yea. It was cold at treeline with winds building in the afternoon from the West. Moderate blowing snow was observed from 3 pm on. When the sun popped down low it got hot quick.

Snowpack: We didn’t dig around much, but seemed to be 40-50 cms of recent snowfall since last week. Last night/today’s snow remained cold and light. Saturday snow wasn’t crusty, but dense. Much less new snow at lower elevations. No signs of instability were found on slopes up to 35 degrees.
