Red Lady Glades

CB Avalanche Center 2018-19 Observations

Location: Kebler Pass Area
Date of Observation: 12/19/2018
Name: Tyler

Subject: Red Lady Glades
Aspect: South East, South, South West
Elevation: 11,600


No observed avalanches or signs of instability

Weather: Periods of intense snowfall and windy flurries. Windy in the open and on the ridge, relatively still in the trees. Lots of blowing snow where there was heavy wind. Wind out of the West
Snowpack: Stayed on low angle terrain all day and saw lots of different snowpack make-up. Where areas were highly wind effected and wind scoured there was hardly any new snow where protected areas had large deposits (during one low speed turn I felt new snow reach up to just below my knee while riding above the crust below the new snow). A crust was present beneath the new snow accumulations on most aspects at all elevations. The crust varied in its thickness and strength.
