Date: 1/16/15 Location: Snodgrass Road Aspect: NE
Weather: Low clouds and overcast this morning. Burning off by 11am to few clouds. Much warmer then that past week.
Snowpack/Avalanche Obs: Passing by NE side of snodgrass on the Gothic road. Certainly a widespread Persistent Slab cycle on the mid and upper slopes of Snodgrass. Classic avalanche terrain generally over 34 degrees was a main characteristic. Lots of wind effect in the east river valley. Looked like more wind stripping then wind loading, but obviously there were some cross loaded pockets too. Lots of loosing snow avalanching on sunny slopes but all d1-d1.5.
