CB Avalanche Center 2015-16 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 03/08/2016
Name: Dave
Subject: Obs Snodgrass
Aspect: North, North East
Elevation: 9,600 – 10,8000

Avalanches:
Weather: AFRICA HOT! Felt like 40F, Clear skies and sunny, clouds did not build throughout the day. Should have put another round of sun screen on!
Snowpack: HS ranges from 85-100 cm. So nice to have a new blanket of snow. You still could fell the old crust layers underneath the new snow. Skiing was ok but challenging for folks being heavy & pushy. No signs of instability! When you changed to a slightly different aspect you found a thin crust, that was not that bad to ski.
