CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/10/2017

The Gunnison Valley Ice Skating Coalition and Crested Butte Ice Climbers for 2018 Club, continue to support a blocking ridge of high pressure over the Western half of the US. These two organizations will look forward to the continued dry weather through the foreseeable future. We can let the GVISC and CBICC have their weather that supports nice ice formation, but I hear the Big Bad Backcountry Skiers For Slate River Powder, are really working for a weather change and have something up their sleeve. Don’t forget to donate to the BBBSFSRP group because we really need some powder!
Low temperatures are again inverted this morning with valley lows near zero and 11,000ft temperatures in the 20’s. These temperatures should rebound nicely today and the clear sky will allow that beautiful Colorado sun to keep warming the sole.
