Buck Ridge Snowpit

Buck Ridge Snowpit

This snowpack in the 3rd Yellowmule off Buck Ridge was 100 cm's deep on a north facing slope at 9,200 ft. The layer of concern is a well developed layer of facets sitting over an ice crust just under a foot off the ground. This layer will remain a concern for some time. Photo GNFAC
