CB Avalanche Center 2018-19 Observations

Location: Kebler Pass Area
Date of Observation: 11/26/2018
Name: Cam

Subject: Post Storm
Aspect: South
Elevation: 9-12 K

Avalanches:

Saw far off slides on Peeler Peak and Little Silver Basin (both E facing). They were large enough to notice in low light but hard to pick out any details.
Oh, and looks like the bowl slid…

Weather: -13 leaving the car. Felt much warmer as we climbed. Calm until reaching the summit ridge.
Snowpack: ~12 inches of new snow lower in the trees, as well as on the due south faces near and above treeline where the wind likely carried some. Near treeline that new snow was above a crust with facets beneath. Above treeline it appears to have fallen on dry ground or maybe a hard crust to the ground in places.
No instabilities while we were descending. I did notice some pockets of E facing rollovers and convexities slid pretty nice even well below treeline.
