Avalanche Summary

No recent avalanche activity has been reported in this region.

Snowpack Summary

Anywhere from 5 to 20 cm of dry snow sits atop a widespread hard crust. In general, the crust is strong and supportive to travel on.

Below the crust, the upper snowpack continues to refreeze and strengthen.

The mid and lower snowpack consists of various weak layers primarily made up of crust and facet combinations. These layers are currently unlikely to be triggered with the presence of a supportive crust above.

Terrain and Travel Advice

  • When a thick, melt-freeze surface crust is present, avalanche activity is unlikely.
  • Expect shallow snow cover that barely covers ground roughness.
  • Carefully evaluate bigger terrain features on an individual basis before committing to them.
