CB Avalanche Center 2016-17 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 03/22/2017
Name: Zach Guy
Subject: Wet loose action on BTL northerlies
Aspect: North, North East
Elevation: Below treeline

Avalanches: Fresh D1 to D2 wet loose on northerly aspects near town. All of these likely ran last 24 hours, appeared to entrain only the top 5-10″ of wet snow.
-D1 in Half Bowl on Axtell
-D1.5 in Unemployment Chute
-D1.5 and D2 Happy Chutes
-D1.5 in Climax Chutes

Also a 3 or 4 fresh looking D2 glide avalanches on Whetstone, NE aspect BTL. Uncertain on the timing of these, looked to be sometime in the past few days; best guess is they ran today.
