Shred lady glades

CB Avalanche Center 2018-19 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 11/25/2018
Name: Sean Feese

Subject: Shred lady glades
Aspect: East, South
Elevation: 12600


Obvious slide from early party in rlb.. apparently triggered from cutting or stomping the summit cornice. Natural slide on east face of Garfield (D2), natural on saddle between Richmond and Hancock (D2 east facing). A few more naturals all on east facing slopes.

Weather: Clear sunny skies, very light winds. Cold
Snowpack: Thin, wind affect. Westerly winds definitely contributed to loading on east faces. Storm slab over facets. Heard some whomping, no cracking. Redwell is looking strange and quite wind affected. Glades skied nice, thin up top and down low.
