Name: Andrew Select Breibart

 

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Location: Washington Gulch-Coneys
Aspect:
Elevation: BTL

 

Avalanches: On the skin out today, I observed a D1/D0.5 avalanche on the north ridge of Snodgrass Mountain in Washington Gulch: BTL on W/ SW aspect in a drainage. Poor visibility on 2/13/21 prevented me from observing this avalanche. It likely failed 2/12-2/13 but I am uncertain.
Weather: calm. mostly obstructed skies. patchy S-1/S1 snowfall with no snow loading.
Snowpack: 2 to 4 inches of new snow in skin track. HS at one ridge top location was 155 cm. Same as yesterday, no cracking, collapsing, or whumping on/off skin track. Same plan as yesterday.
