I am starting this thread to talk about snow pack conditions in CO (not the Colorado Avalanche hockey team)
Having only lived in Colorado for 3+ years, I'm trying to learn the local weather patterns and see how it impacts the snow stability.
Obviously, there is not much snow on the ground right now, I'd like to get feedback from you avy savvy bears on how this current weather pattern could impact the future snow pack that will develop. When I was at A-Basin Monday, the snow was a "sugar cookie" type, and there was quite a bit of graupel falling.
I'm no avalanche expert, but can these rapid fluctuations in weather be setting up a very weak base layer for future layers to settle on?
