Snodgrass

GUIDE(S): Donny
DATE: 15-01-12
ACTIVITY: Ski touring
LOCATION: Snodgrass
ELEVATION: 9,600’ to 11,150′
ASPECT: SE-S-SW-W-NW

WEATHER: Mostly cloudy, no precip, calm and warm.  It was “Africa hot” in Wash Gulch as we toured out – a product of a greenhouse effect, I would guess.

SNOWPACK/AVALANCHE OBS: 4” of new snow from yesterday (maximum).  We skied the west aspect of Snodgrass down to Wash Gulch.  We had no signs of instabilities.  The ski pen was 20 to 40 cm.  The 12/13 interface could not be felt in the shaded areas.
