Surprisingly Good Warm Cream.

CB Avalanche Center 2020-21 Observations

Zone: Northwest Mountains
Location: Upper Crystal Watershed
Date of Observation: 11/21/2020
Name: Evan Ross

Subject: Surprisingly Good Warm Cream.
Aspect: West, North West
Elevation: 11,000-12,000

Weather: Mostly cloudy becoming partly cloudy in the evening. Calm winds observed, with some snow blowing off the high peaks.

Snowpack: Short late afternoon tour. ~10-12cm of new snow sitting on a mixed bag of old snow surfaces. No concerns were found, so no detailed observations were necessary. The combination of the last major wind event, plus the recent thick snow, made for some surprisingly good ski conditions. Ski pen averaged 10-20cm. Traveled on WNW facing slopes between 11,000-12,000ft.
