Date of Observation: 02/06/2021
Name: Zach Kinler
Zone: SE/NW mountains
Avalanches: Many large and widely propagating avalanches were observed during a brief clearing that allowed views of Mt. Emmons, Gothic, Belleview, Schuylkill and Redwell. Leeward aspects in this “transition zone” from our SE mountains to our NW mountains finally tipped with the most recent round of snow and wind. A few of these avalanches propagated entire paths as well as connecting multiple paths at a time. Impressive slides!
Weather: Blustery NW flow, 5″ HST in town. Snow and wind gave way to some clear skies around and just west of town allowing for views into the nearby alpine.
