Continuously assess conditions as you gain elevation. Winter conditions persist at higher elevations.

New wind slabs could form where precipitation falls as snow.




Avalanche Summary

One natural and one human triggered cornice fall has been reported in the past couple days.

If you have any recent photos or observations, please submit them to the Mountain Information Network, observations are limited in the spring.

Snowpack Summary

Storm snow will continue to accumulate at higher elevations. This snow may overlie a crust that it might not bond well too. Below treeline rain will keep the surface wet or moist where snow still exists. Most below treeline terrain is already snow free.

Terrain and Travel Advice

  • Be carefull around freshly wind loaded features.
  • Expect shallow snow cover that barely covers ground roughness.
  • Minimize your exposure time below cornices.
  • The more the snow feels like a slurpy, the more likely loose wet avalanches will become.
  • Make observations and assess conditions continually as you travel.
