Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 01/25/2019
Name: Petar Dopchev
Subject: Natural Avalanches?
Aspect: South East, South
Not sure, if you guys had noticed those already, but went to fly my drone and saw these two north of the Snodgrass/Gothic trailhead – above the stables. Not certain what the name of that mountain is – No Name Mountain? (Forecaster note: White Mountain) Anyway, wanted to get close and get a video of it, but it turned out to be way further than I thought and ran out of battery. The two adjacent faces went down. Was there right at sunset…
(Forecaster note: These avalanches were first observed the morning of 1/23, but we really appreciate the observation and new photo angle of these avalanches!)
Weather: It was nuking (really windy) on those ridges in the morning. I can see those from my balcony, and usually check to see, if it is windy up high.
