10webCBAC Observations

Date of Observation: 02/07/2023
Name: Mark Robbins

Zone: Northwest Mountains
Route Description: anthracites

Observed avalanche activity: No
Weather: cold in the shade, hot in the sun. Calm winds
Snowpack: Enjoyed southerly skiing in the morning, sunday night’s storm snow had settled but not yet gone thermal on a crust that was supportive to skis but not to poles. By the afternoon the sun had done its thing to the new southerly snow. First skin glopping of the winter.

Evidence of the wind event really just at ridgelines, north facing snow from sunday night was as yet undisturbed and cold.
