Practice good group management and ride avalanche terrain one at a time.

Avoid slopes with terrain traps that would increase the consequences of even a small avalanche.




Avalanche Summary

No new avalanches have been reported in the past couple days.

Snowpack Summary

20 to 30 cm of new snow overlies a crust formed in mid March on all aspects except higher elevation north facing terrain. The snow surface will become moist at lower elevations.

Numerous sun crusts exist in the upper snowpack on east through west aspects.

A widespread crust with facets above is buried 80 to 120 cm deep. Steep or convex terrain features with a shallow or thin to thick snowpack at treeline and above are the places where it may still be possible to trigger this layer.
