More collapsing around gothic

CB Avalanche Center 2017-18 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 01/14/2018
Name: Alex Tiberio

Subject: More collapsing around gothic
Aspect: North East, East
Elevation: 9,400-10,200

Weather: Clear skies
Snowpack: While setting a track up climbers right of the Snodgrass/Gothic saddle through the aspen groves there were large collapses in all open areas, none of which were steeper than 30 degrees so nothing moved. Was going to dig a pit at one point in an opening in the trees, however the slope collapsed while I was digging so I moved on. No collapses in the denser larger aspens on slopes up to 35 degrees
