Low hazard south of forecast area

CB Avalanche Center 2016-17 Observations

Location: Taylor Canyon
Date of Observation: 01/26/2017
Name: Zach Guy
Subject: Low hazard south of forecast area
Aspect: North, North East, East, South East, South
Elevation: Below treeline

Snowpack: Traveled near and around Taylor Canyon. HS ~100 cm. Only 6″ or less over the 1/19 interface (crust or NSF, no SH observed), and the upper snowpack is now entirely faceted and weak, with thin faceted crusts on sunnier aspects. Snowpack is quickly faceting throughout. I saw no avalanche concerns other than shallow facet sluffing, and we traveled on numerous steep slopes.
