Observations from Level 1 NAU class

Postby Kaptain Safe T » February 20th, 2017, 8:18 am

A big shout out to all the NAU level 1 students...another successful and energetic session not to mention all the new snow and real time challenges and weather action......No sign or reports of any naturals nonetheless, a full data pit yesterday at 11600 west aspect did produce an ECTP at 150 cm cm....total pit depth was 200..It was new snow reacting on old surface ..ASB reported 16 inches total new snow out of 3 day cycle. This pit was dug in a convexity on purpose thinking we might get some reactivity.....Things should mend quickly based on this warm weather coming our way....Back to Spring for a couple daze. Get out there Safely while you can. Cheers.
