Posted on Wednesday, February 10, 2016 by Registered CommenterCrowe | CommentsPost a Comment
You know how in every town there are geezers who say, "if you don't like the weather, just wait a few minutes"? Well, in Golden recently we are those geezers. Lately the mix has included blower pow, blower wind, wind slabs, wind crusts, solar radiation, temperature crusts and surface hoar. And more snow is coming! Adam Sherriff helps us make sense of it all.

Yes, it seems we are in a bit of a rut. But the snow has been falling somewhat. And the wind has been blowing somewhat. So thinking about where the two have combined to form slabs is key to backcountry travel at the moment. Ryan Harvey helps us think about it.

November 9 Video Update - Hey Surface Hoar, Haven't Seen You Since Last Winter

Yes, there is snow. But not much of it. And it isn't all staying in place. Kyle Hale - with emotional support from Ryan Harvey, Chris Granter and (introducing) Adam Sherriff - gives us the heads up on what's going down in the alpine. Short story: be careful. The snowpack is thin and there is a reactive surface hoar layer buried within, and another growing on top.
