LOCATION: Cement Creek Area
DATE OF OBSERVATION: 01/20/2015
NAME: Zach Guy
SUBJECT: Natural slab avalanche near CB South
ASPECT: East
ELEVATION: BTL

 

AVALANCHES: Fresh looking natural persistent slab avalanche on an east aspect below treeline. Hard to tell exactly when it ran, but I chatted with a resident who keeps eyes on that slope and she thought it was new today. The slope is a crossloaded, sagebrush slope below Whetstone/Round Mountain. The slab looked about 12″-18″ deep, (most of the season’s snowpack), and was about 100 feet wide. SS-N-R2-D1.5-O
