Information and activity on avalanches in the Gothic area
January 28: The deep snowpack is solid but layers near the surface are susceptible to fracturing so caution is need on steep slopes. Very little, and nothing big, has run on Snodgrass Mtn. For general conditions locally and state wide check the links on the Links page under Contacts for the Crested Butte Avalanche Center or the Colorado Avalanche Center as they will give day to day evaluations and updates.
