Red Lady Glades

CB Avalanche Center 2015-16 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 03/21/2016
Name: DB
Subject: Red Lady Glades
Aspect: South East, South
Elevation: 9-12000

Avalanches:
Weather: Partly cloudy with building clouds throughout the day. It was warm below tree line. Once in the alpine the wind raged, my face still hurts. Temps were super warm 35-40 at the trail head and it was cold up high.
Snowpack: The wind kept the snow surface hard in the alpine. Once at tree line the snow softness up and was creamy to slush down low. I saw no signs of instability.

Skiing low was still good due to warming. Top was not ideal but was not breakable, just hard pack skiing
