Red lady glades

CB Avalanche Center2016-17 Observations

Location: Kebler Pass Area
Date of Observation: 12/13/2016
Subject: Red lady glades
Aspect: South
Elevation: 11,000

Avalanches: none observed
Weather: Overcast and warm. Windy conditions even below treeline
Snowpack: 58 cm right below treeline. Layered snowpack although relatively consolidated. I saw no signs of instability but there was snow being blown around even in the Aspen trees so I imagine there was a lot of transport up high. Thicker denser snow on the surface from temp and sun but low angle slopes helped to not allow the sunburst to develop.
