Red lady Bowl

CBAC2014-15 Observations

GUIDE(S): Donny
DATE: 15-03-27
LOCATION: Red Lady Bowl
ELEVATION9200’ to 12,400′
WEATHER: Clear, warm, moderate winds throughout day.
SNOWPACK/AVALANCHE OBS: Exactly as described on the bulletin.  The top of the bowl had small wind slabs and bigger cornices.  There’s about a foot of new snow deposited on the old surface and the upper half of this is warm and dense.  In the middle of the sandwich was drier, winter-like snow.  Ski cutting didn’t produce any activity.  There’s evidence of wet, loose slide activity from yesterday – most likely initiated by small cornice drops.  We were out of there before anything heated up too much.
