Stampede Pass area out of Crystal Springs Sno-Park towards radio towers
Signs of Unstable Snow
Did you see shooting cracks?
Did you experience collapsing or whumpfing?
Right and sunny weather all day above the low clouds and we had wide spread significant Surface Hoar EVERYWHERE!!!! The crystals were a quarter to half in tall and they will definitely be creating a week later in the snowpack as we get new snow this week!
Observed Avalanche Problem #1:
Pretty windy across the area all afternoon and I did experience wind slabs that were cracking but very isolated and not wide spread.
