CB Avalanche CenterCBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 03/06/2022

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Route Description: 9,200-12,300 feet, SE aspect; standard route.

Observed avalanche activity: No
Weather: Calm wind, mid to upper teens and overcast in the morning. By the afternoon, intermittant light snow and moderate SW wind.
Snowpack: A foot or so of super low density snow on a firm crust. No signs of instability, not even a little sluffing at the top. Occasionally, an edge would bump the underlying crust. Even with flat light, and at times low visibility, we spent the better part of the day lapping the bowl; floating on clouds of snow! A concern would be for the increasing winds to form fresh windslabs overnight.
