Assess steep lines for wind slabs before committing.

Forecast confidence is limited this time of year due to few observations.




Avalanche Summary

Small natural wind slabs have been reported in the region. Observations are very limited in this region.

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

Snowpack Summary

On high north facing terrain up to 10 cm of dry snow may be found.  A new crust will likely be found on all other aspects and elevations. This crust will likely become moist throughout the day with rising temperatures and solar input.

Below treeline terrain is snow free or has very low snow cover. Travel conditions are challenging with exposed rocks, stumps, and open creeks.
