Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 01/28/2017
Name: Arden Feldman
Subject: CBAC Snodgrass Study Plot Snowpit
Aspect: North East
Elevation: 9760

Avalanches: Observed one D2 wind slab slab on a west aspect ATL and one D1.5 point release on a SE aspect NTL that entrained a solid amount of snow on its way down. Also jumped around on some steep rollovers below Gothic Rd but nothing budged other than some minor facet sluffing.
Weather: See profile. Few clouds with light winds. Cold.
Snowpack: See profile. SH layer was decomposing and hard to identify without tests. Yet again it produced non propagating results in tests.
