Natural slab below Gothic

CBAC CBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 02/13/2022
Name: billy barr

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Route Description: Gothic

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: A slide ran off Gothic a few days ago, probably triggered by wind loaded snow sliding off the straight face area and then fracturing below it, with a decent run-out given how little snow we have been getting. Photo attached.
Snowpack: This winter snowfall amount has dropped to 25% below average but the water content of that snow is only 7% below average. Half of the total snow this winter came during the end of December storm. Snowpack is actually holding on pretty well given the dryness but is still 22% below average. –Since there is no snow to report i thought i would give you a ‘no-snow’ report.
