CAIC: Colorado Avalanche Information Center BC Zone Observation Report

Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 12:00 AM
Front Range





  • Snowpack Obsvervation #1
    • Cracking: None
    • Collapsing: None
    • Persistent Weak Layer: Yes
    • Comments: Wind slabs not a problem here as storm snow fell with little wind, and light winds really only moved the snow into deeper, soft drifts. No cohesion in the storm snow, but could get it to run in small sluffs on slopes 35 degrees and steeper. Deep PWLs still present, but rounding, and not reactive. Still possible to pull out the isolated hard slab, but likelihood is low.
