Crested Butte Area

CBAC2014-15 Observations

Guide- Jake
Location- Axtell glades
L- 9400-10800
Aspect- NNW

Wx- intermittent snow flurries and upslope wind. Cold, guessing in the 20s (can’t believe that counts as cold these days).

Spx/Avalanche obs- no recent activity noticed by this cowpoke. Anything open with enough of an angle to hit sun was a crustwich on top of facets. A quickie on a NNW open slope at 25 degrees yielded a couple of CTM results under the highest crust, a stout MFC 15 cms thick. Treed and shaded stayed soft.
