Snodgrass

CB Avalanche Center 2020-21 Observations

Zone: Southeast Mountains

Location: Saddle to gothic road

Date of Observation: 12/20/2020

Name: JAFAR TABAIAN

 

Subject: Snodgrass

Aspect: North East

Elevation: BTL

Avalanches: Many natural and skier caused slides. Our ski route followed two tracks that led directly into skier initiated D1.5 R1 slide, looked like they skied out. We deviated the route and took a mellow line out. During which we remotely triggered a slide into a gully. Crown looked 12-18” from below (attached photo). My takeaway of the current conditions on Snod is to assume any convex rollover greater than 30 degrees will avalanche if it hasn’t already.
