Wash Gulch Wandering

CB Avalanche Center 2020-21 Observations

Date of Observation: 01/26/2021
Name: Ben Ammon

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Location: Coney’s and Snodgrass
Aspect: North East, East, South, South West, West
Elevation: B/NTL

Avalanches: Observed debris below the West Face of Gothic. Looked fairly fresh but visibility was mediocre so hard to say from when, could not see start zones well enough to tell.
Weather: Overcast with periods of broken skies until around 230pm, with on and off S-1 and very light to calm winds. After 230pm winds were moderate from NW and S1 snowfall.
Snowpack: Storm snow much more supportive today, 4F to F+ right above the 1/19 interface. Traveled a few of the same zones Saturday on the tail end of the largest snowfall and could still feel old tracks despite very deep conditions, but today was a different story! Traveled on terrain up to the low 30 degree range facing NE, E, S, SW, and W. Observed no signs of instability, observed generally excellent ski quality.
