CB Avalanche Center CBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 03/23/2022
Name: Zach Guy

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Route Description: Inbounds CBMR

Observed avalanche activity: Yes
Avalanches: A D1, presumably windslab, ran this afternoon out of M Face on Whetstone.
Weather: Windy is an understatement. Impressive amount of blowing snow off of all peaks. Some plumes were blowing towards the southeast (White), some were blowing towards the southwest (Axtell, Bellview) and anything in between.
Snowpack: Seemed like a lot of ablating snow more than loading. Little eddies and concave features were getting drifted in with 3″ to 6″ of slabby snow. Abrupt road cuts had 12″ to 18″ localized drifts behind them.
