CB Avalanche Center2016-17 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area, Snodgrass
Date of Observation: 01/31/2016
Name: Evan Ross
Subject: No current instabilities observed
Aspect: North East, East
Elevation: 10,700 BTL

Weather: Mostly sunny with sun warming snow surfaces on southerly facing slopes. Calm winds.
Snowpack: Quick test pit BTL on an ENE aspect showed more of the same with the basal facets 1.5/2mm in this area and rounding. CT result was moderate and sudden on the NSF interface 25cm down under a F to 4F- slab. No time for an ECT but ski tracks on suspect slopes showed this interface to be a non-issue currently. No signs to instability on suspect terrain other then some sluffing in steep terrain as the snow surface continues to weaken with the recent cold weather.
