Recent storm snow may still need time to stabilize and bond to underlying surfaces. Don't be lured by clearing skies into big terrain too quickly.




Snowpack Summary

Roughly 30 cm of recent snowfall has buried a widespread, thick crust at higher elevations. Strom snow may not bond right away to the underlying crust.

Conditions remain rugged at lower elevations with a shallow snowpack and a mix of wet snow and crusts.
