Continue to assess your local conditions. Large cornices and pockets of wind slab may persist along ridgetops in the alpine.




Avalanche Summary

No new avalanches have been reported.

Snowpack Summary

Up to 5 cm of new snow sits atop various surfaces at higher elevations, including firm wind-affected surfaces, hard crusts, and loose powder snow (primarily in sheltered north-facing terrain).

Large, fragile cornices can be found on exposed ridgelines and should be given a wide berth.

Below roughly 1300 m a trace of new snow overlies a widespread melt-freeze crust.

Terrain and Travel Advice

  • Make observations and assess conditions continually as you travel.
  • When a thick, melt-freeze surface crust is present, avalanche activity is unlikely.
  • Pay attention to cornices and give them a wide berth when traveling on or below ridges.
  • Watch for wind-loaded pockets especially around ridgecrest and in extreme terrain.
