Gothic 7am Report

CB Avalanche Center2017-18 Observations

Location: Crested Butte Area
Date of Observation: 04/08/2018
Name: billy bar

Subject: Gothic 7am Report
Elevation: 9,500ft

Weather: This is beyond what i have even been used to in winter. The 24 hour totals includes 0.42″ of rain (0.30″ after sunset), and that is the easy part. For snow alone there was 6″ new snow and 0.88″ of water from the snow. A little bit of separating out the snow from rain during the transition period but this is close if not accurate (some snow on the snowboard washed away in the evening). Snowpack dropped 4″ during the day yesterday and all that moisture last night only raised it 1½” to 35½”. The overnight low is the current 30F. Snow stopped and strong wind started up and going on now but with little patches of clearing.
