Location: Colorado Creek

Route & General Observations

Explored the mining trail up Colorado creek. Most of the day spent in the forest and stuck in alder patches.

Weather & Snow Characteristics
Please provide details to help us determine the weather and snowpack during the time this observation took place.

Clear sky and no wind.

Snow surface

Was looking for but did not find surface hoar in open areas.


In openings between alder patches, snowpack was approx. 100cm, and was more supportable than I expected to find. About 30cm of newer, softer snow over an interface with a more consolidated layer.

No formal pits or tests performed.
