RMBL Gothic Snow Study Plot 12.15.22

10webCBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 12/15/2022
Name: Benjamin Schmatz

Zone: Southeast Mountains
Route Description: RMBL Snow Study Plot in parking lot in front of Dining Hall

Observed avalanche activity: No

Weather: Light Snow, overcast, and cold ~15deg

Snowpack: At this location we do not see any old snow problems. The first few storms of the season melted out and did not stick. The bottom layer here was created by the 11/28 storm cycle and has built up since then. Relatively stable considering the lack of faceted snow at the bottom. It was difficult to even discern a layer delineation in the snow pack, but we determined that grain size and hardness deserved a boundary designation. ECTX. no result from an extended column test.
